Object, Reflection and Shadow


Original footage and sound

HD single-channel video and soundscape

Duration: 11 minutes, 33 seconds (with title or installation loop without title)

Aspect Ratio: 16:9



Object Reflection and Shadow was filmed at a guest-house in Chungking Mansions in Hong Kong. It examines concepts of perception, harmonious and discordant structures and patterns in the moving image and sound and

the passing of time and explores the phenomenological conditions of 'flicker' – for example how flicker can alter

and distort our perception and whether flicker may have an impact on our wellbeing. The soundscape created for

the video is a kind of aural equivalent, complementing and counterpointing the images.


The work was created for my solo exhibition at the Market Gallery, Glasgow, UK in Sep/Oct 2012.
