Research for Rabies Rabbit

is a research project for a book about a Rabid Rabbit. The story relies on different metaphors to illustrate itself.

An investigation of forms and atmosphere through the myth of the 3 rabbits, its origins in the Sui dynasty and its spread through the silk route, and through war and conquest.

The drawings serve as a point of intersection.

Being Seen Trying 1/4

Being Seen Trying is an ambitious room-sized video installation. Viewers encounter the pixelated imagery of a crowd at prayer.
Each individual, with face contorted, using face recognition software, is projected onto a separate pane of glass.
The footage used in the artwork has been sourced from a host of online Darshans (or online ceremonies) at which devotees are given sight of the temple deity. Observing that many now pray in front of computers, I investigate how the Internet processes a prayer. The footage also recalls online surveillance technologies. 

Footage is sourced from the Internet, consisting of online 'Darshan' recordings subsequently processed through Online Face Detection software.
