Lines of Flight 1988 

This two part installation considers the relationship between visuality and projection in representation, both literally and metaphorically. The images are appropriated from a photojournalistic or documentary context and projected anamorphically. Part 1 shows groups of people staring at a subject beyond the frame of the image, or withholding their gaze. Part 2 projects images taken from the air of groups of people or animals seen from afar. The work explores the power of photographic representation to render both the subject of vision and the activity of the gaze. It points to the limits of vision in the withholding of a subject of the gaze within the image (part 1) and in the framing of the projected aerial image (part 2).
