After All, Sometimes Just Changing The Point Of View Can Transform The Landscape

"After All, Sometimes Just Changing The Point Of View Can Transform The Landscape" , 2016, 2 screen video projection installation

Shown as a 2 screen installation with benches, "After All, Sometimes Just Changing The Point Of View Can Transform The Landscape", meets contemporary society, using four stereotypical characters that in some way evoke fear in today's social imaginary. Perceptions of colour, gender and dress are challenged in a dialogue between the same characters dressed in white and then in opposition to themselves in normal coloured attire, as a different role. Our stereotypical assumptions related to the visual are challenged through the staging of multiple oppositions around 'difference', asking us to question the premise of the fears we ourselves might hold in relation to the other, who at any one time, might also be the self.
