How We Fall

2:31 (2012)

Cement and Light:
‘How We Fall’ observes a moment of change: Cities fall, governments and humans fall: This piece is at the same time a study of material and light, and a suggestion of melancholy reflection on our changing fortunes.
Created using a technique of sculpting frames picked from multiple repetitive actions, ‘How We Fall’ continues an interest in the potential of video as sculpture. Narrative without narrative, singular in its ‘impossible’ observation of physical materials: The finding of beauty, energy and chance in seemingly dull materials through the manipulation and reconstruction of time.
