Blowtorch Series:

Sense Of Measure

Digital video, 2min 20sec.

A video selected for my M.A. Exhibiton.

Sense Of Measure is a play on words and media about the sense of measuring an experience of time. My video and sculpture practice is concerned with how we can negotiate life through a basic understanding of the things that surround us.

We Destroy The Things We Love

Digital video, 1min 30sec. A video about the danger of anticipation.

Earlier work in the M.A. research phase:

Drawing Time: Crate Space, Margate

Documentation excerpt of a 2.5 hour performance by Jihun Baek – more information on this piece is available under the performance section of this page.

Line Draws A Blank

Digital video, 2min, no audio.

If duration is a continuous movement of differentiation (Bergson) then is there a way to understand or visualise its pattern? Line Draws A Blank is about the possibility of two states crossing each other, to think of time as layers of a twisting and turning progression.

Waiting in vain

Digital video, 45sec, looped, no audio.

A video about the vanity of a moment.

New work on sale at “Evolution” show

I’m delighted to be part of the “Evolution” show opening tomorrow at North York Arts Centre on Yonge Street near Sheppard Avenue West. Evolution (Four years together) is mixed-media art exhibit that celebrates the artwork done by Art Starts’ Platform A micro-grant recipients, 2013-17. There’ll be spoken word, videos, documentaries, African dance, belly dance, hip-hop dance, drag show, visual arts, sculptures and much more. The evening promises to be very lively and will be my first time seeing so many artists’ work together blending cultures and embracing community!

About my work:

Surface Excess is about the layers of time that pass us on a daily basis. Combining images of nature, a city in passing and humanity together through 35mm double exposure photography allows the blending of ever changing materials into one succinct metaphor. Existence and an acknowledgement of temporality are ideas in conversations using the motifs of leaves, color, light, shadow, form and landscape. The use of analogue materials (35mm film) is essential to the authentic layering of passing moments in time.Using the tactile quality of film makes me appreciate how precious each negative is, there only being 24 or 36 exposures per roll. It is through the medium of film photography that I must calculate each negative per roll of film, to understand not to be trigger-happy, to be as calm and appreciative of moments in time and to candidly record them, to remember that to make a good photo, you have to live or aspire to live in that frame or that perfect moment in passing. Otherwise, what worth is there to being behind the lens?
