Statement for Disavowal, my piece for the Threshold show

This project concerns the psychological and physical attachments a spectator can have when viewing a video or film installation. Visually available worlds, particularly video installations often represent constructed realities. Whether these worlds are fiction or documentary, there are still basic techniques used and there is a loss of time within these worlds that remains uncalculated. It is entirely up to the spectator to maintain recognition of this fine line of immersion in illusion which can  be seen as an exploration of reality, external and internal form the experience of the spectator.
Disavowal, or the process of denial of association or representation, concerns itself with the moment of illusion.
