Ghosts (remembering my father) (2006)

Ghosts (remembering my father)

blocked 'doorway', two slide projections, emulsion paint, bedsheet, variable dimensions

Projected light gives the appearance of light pouring through the (non-existent) doorway. (see second image).  When the viewer walks across the beam of the projector they discover, within their own shadow in the "doorway", a life-size hidden image of my my father carrying me as a child. (see first image).  The hidden image can only be explored by moving around. This "memory" was created by a fainter projection from a higher, more oblique position.


Requires its own dark exhibition space.
