Untitled (Dreamcatcher), loop, 2010
This video work involves a focusing of gaze upon and through a combination of elements that at first might appear unspectacular or even frustrating, yet as one’s eyes accept and explore them a transition into something meditative occurs where the whole becomes curious and, to me in that moment, the metaphor of the ‘dreamcatcher’ -a common item in new age shops, apparently hand-crafted and spiritually potent- was here found in surf passing behind (or is that through?) a loop of rope on the back of a lifeboat. The everyday oscilates between the mundane and alchemical. Another kind of found image. A found moment even.
