Let what cannot be described be seen. Let what cannot be spoken be heard.
There is very little that can be said about this project. The work came from a place of admiration for the original audio. Detailing how it was made will, I feel, colour what it is trying to say, and explaining what it is trying to say will make it too easy to dismiss.
In summary, my statement about this project is that no two people see the same artwork, and what you know changes and influences what you will subsequently see. You are part of how my artwork is understood and you cannot be wrong.
Keenly through my childhood I never felt the right height
the fear was always that I was small, that I could be lost, that I could disappearthat even spaces I knew I did not know, that I could not see what was wrong
what lurked around me was obvious but invisible
and so the world felt so very big
and I felt very small
unable to tell what I was even seeing
or to recognise the familiar in front of me
Feeling Small is a repeated image piece that relies on environment homogeny to manipulate the viewer into a false feeling of transport. I used a manipulation of the perspective and physical angling of the camera, including digging out areas around me to make some shots possible, to give the impression of slowly shrinking and deflating in the woods. Some images are framed within themselves, to create a deliberate feeling of fundamental wrongness and to make the familiar seem odd and impossible.
