Artist(s) and People Involved:


Artist Statement:

    A lyrical piece delving into corporiality and featuring the first appearance of the vanitas motifs that were to dominate my work from then on.

    The animation was programmed and rendered while I was Artist in Residence at the old Computer Graphics Lab at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1991. The installation version was commissioned by Video Positive ’93 (now FACT), Liverpool. It was also exhibited at “British Artists of the Nineties” show at Kunstwerke in Berlin in 1993. After this experience I pretty much gave up installations and stuck to screen based work – life’s too short.

Technical Information:

    Digital and video animation, 6 mins, U-matic SP, 1992.

    (Video installation, 4 monitors and video decks, 1993)
