HD video, installation and net project
Video duration: Two minutes, 58 seconds (looped).
Exhibited: Red Mansion Art Prize, Lethaby Gallery, London, U.K., 2013.
This video and net-based work is grounded in the real and digital production of objects. Made during a residency in Beijing, two types of real work are represented: Work in the factory, and the attention-based work of the consumer.
The central character in this video is based upon the Mask Bear© a character with a large commercial franchise in China.
In the street battle between the linguistic and imagistic the visual has been ruling for years. And as our consciousness is shaped through the images of consumerism how can we make sense of our surroundings, take control of our behaviour and retain the right to our own attention?
