Family relationships are defined over time by experience and moulded by received notions from the proliferation of fact and fiction prevalent today. The work is concerned with the relationship between a father and son as seen through the eyes of their wife and mother of forty years. In Father, Son, her need to keep everything under control, is reflected in the wall text which documents her attempts to direct the work. In Son, Husband her fears are echoed in its associated wall text.
The animations use still images taken over a short space of time and expanded in film software to slowly repeating endless loops. A time is created which inhabits the border between the photographic and cinematic. The still camera becomes a witness to time passing rather than the index of an event.
Looking is extended so that the possibility of new understanding of long term familial relationship might be explored.
