Still from 'Ghost Light', 16mm film converted to digital two channel video
Screens are like ghosts. We can manifest them, they are transparent, ephemeral, and surround us in a passive and unknowing way. We can choose to acknowledge and become aware of them by activating the images that lie dormant behind their glassy surfaces. Ghost Light, is a two-channel, screen-based work that uses digitally altered 16mm film footage to highlight the relationship between touch and the screen-based image. In a world where we summon images using swipe and scroll gestures, this work attempts to communicate back using a series of haunting and seductive images that gently caress and dance across the screen surface.
