For the past several years my work has been focused on a critique of the petroleum industry and consumerism. While participating in a residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in 2016 I created a large diorama of plastic artifacts that were used for a photography project. Inspired by simple curiosity, I randomly navigated a cell phone through the diorama and recorded the scenes and sounds of the reflective surfaces and plastic objects.
This experimental short film is a collection of selected scenes integrated with an electronically modified soundtrack.
Premiered at the 11th annual Photophobia festival of short-format contemporary media, film, video and moving image (co-organized by Hamilton Arts Inc. and The Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hamilton, ON).
