Liquid Crystal

Multi-channel video installation, 2 projection screens, 1 iPhone, 1 iPad, tree stump, sound. 2017

 

This work utilizes two large rear projection screens set on an angle to construct a landscape of screens. Additionally, an iPad and iPhone sit on a tree stump with images of crystals growing in a timelapse video from liquid to solid states. The projected animations include the erasure of the landscape which is then replaced with a part of it in a different form of matter. The work points to the production of the liquid crystal display and to the physicality of materials inside the screen, which in use are magical and animated in themselves.
