Constant Function: 1994 | 2015, Film/Video

With the Constant Function series I wanted to give prominence to the actions of the everyday by creating my own slow motion cinematic moments with my body instead of with a camera or a computer. My body is the catalyst for the sedentary action. My subdued movements parody that of technological slow motion but they do not match it because inevitably the body fails to comply with the perfection of mechanically interfered speed. With each of the soundtracks taken from actual live news coverage, there is a period of waiting, anticipation and a feeling of the unknown.
