Black animation screen test 2010

I feel rather aware of the studio as a convention, and its traditional whiteness has affected the work dramatically. In the last show I responded by presenting the work within a 'science lab' situation. It seemed to make sense drawing that parallel between those two highly controlled environments – it’s almost like the Petri dish, sanitised for the sake of one culture.

As with the Sonia Boyce piece, there is close affinity between this work and those lived objects behind glass (a device or filter that somehow promises a more objective view). Its funny since I feel that the work is becoming more personal, but at the same time its appearance is rather cool. I'm interested in that dichotomy between the subjective and the objective and will to push this further...
