"Unnatural tendencies" (2005) Video Projection.
This film is projected from the ceiling
onto the floor, it appears as a blue tinged pool of light.
The film unfolds a series of encounters
between birds, who are alternatively guarding and pecking
at fruit amid a hard frost.
Any narrative structure comes from the
birds themselves; Visually the film explores their own relationships
it could be seen as a metaphore to behaviour patterns in
humans, as much as being a window onto a possibly more ‘natural’
The circle is devisive, it contains and
centres the activity of the birds, it also alludes to a
more ‘optically framed’ past world. The image
could be described as poetic, an important element is the
rhythm that the birds make on their own pathways and trajectories.
The work explores issues of surveillance, mobility and relationships.
