Water Damage

Water Damage (2015) Video projection, digital print on polyester organza. 250 x 300cm (variable)

This textile-based video installation pays tribute to the processes of decay which pervade living experience. The artist was inspired by the physical degradation of her grandfather’s diaries, which had been stored in a leaky basement after his death. The decomposition of these personal diaries mirrors the slow distortion of memories over time as well as the decay of our remains. The projection surface is a printed fabric curtain on which patterns taken from the diaries’ smudged pages appear as static and moving imagery
