Continuum (1998)

Video projection, silent, looped.

Continuum is constructed from composite bullets. The transformation from ‘real’ bullets to interpreted bullets parallels the distancing experience of media. The initial correlating pun of shooting a bullet and shooting a film mask a serious meditation: that media is a powerful modern weapon. In war, the centers of communication are now dominated first as key to the system of control. Three frames signify the past, the present and the future. By constantly reenacting the ‘presence’ of the bullet however, history is perpetually dragged into the present and the forward trajectory of the future is retained; an arrested development’.
