The Unbinding 2014
3D Digital Cinema
No fixed duration (loop)
Produced by Le Fresnoy with the aid of an innovation grant from Neuflize
The Unbinding presents a world made up of fragments of archived images. Conceived in the form of an installation, this stereoscopic video work, projected in passive 3D, reveals a figure whose face, hands and hair change with each of her movements and who is contained within a constantly reconfiguring loop.
Inspired by cubist portraits, surrealist collages, Philip K. Dick’s “scramble suit” and time loops and time machines from 20th century science fiction, this work offers an reflection on the everyday activities of appropriation and sampling made possible by digital technologies and networks. It raises the question of how we construct our own worlds through different media.
