Projected from first principles
Installation. Two synchronised HD projections with sound, mild steel,
3 two-way mirrored glass panels, mylar & sound.
2010.
A mild steel and two-way mirror glass structure in the centre of a totally dark room. Two projections alternate. One shows a person seated at a table gesturing and is projected onto one of the walls in the space, which is tilted off the vertical. The other, which is shot from the passenger seat of a car travelling through a highway junction, is projected onto one of the two-way mirror panes. The latter video is repeated in a series of crystalline reflections of reflections in the two-way mirrors. The former is accompanied by a low rumbling soundtrack which builds to a crescendo before cutting abruptly to silence when the image disappears.

Projected from first principles was created while on a residency at The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh in early 2010 and exhibited as part of the group show Nothing is impossible which was curated by Mark Garry and Georgina Jackson.
