‘Succession (for the Blackbird)’

Video work ‘Succession (for the Blackbird)’ originally made in August 2012, and re-edited in January 2014, about an event in my backyard in May 2012.

I made the moving image work partly as a way of me dealing with an event that I witnessed – one that I perceived to be a tragedy, a loss and bewilderment.

The soundtrack is made up of both ‘real time’ sound from the camera during the ‘event’, and a section of the collected sound slowed down to 10% of ‘real time’, amplified and looped in order to hear the specific sound of the ants eating the blood.


Please select 720 HD on bottom right of frame, and turn your volume up before watching.
