Black Friday

My practice explores the real and the illusion. My aim is to capture unpredictable and irreproducible outcomes and happenings that break the fabric of our everyday life.

FMP: On November 24th, 2017, a false alarm, which originated from unclear sources, made thousands of people believe that a terror attack was happening in the streets of Oxford Circus.  'Black Friday' narrates the event, as seen from different perspectives and including both objective and subjective facts and experiences of the day. What is 'true'? Does it (really) matter?

  • I believe that today’s need for immediacy - partly owed to digital media - makes it difficult to discern ‘reality’ within a polluted digital landscape. 

    Through my practice, my aim is to discover what is (more) real, and I do this by examining episodes of  ‘accidental reality’, questioning the (ir)reproducibility of media, and by attempting to escape ‘linear’ conceptions of time and space.

    My practice involves experimenting with different media, including projections, sound, graphics and 3D reproduction.
