Description of artwork Epilogue, Digital video, 20 mins. Sometimes it is when we sit very still that we remember…Sometimes it is when we sit very still that it is hard to forget… Epilogue is a 20-minute video piece that presents the hypnotic passing of time from a position of stasis. This work is evocative, quiet and reminiscent of the expanded cinema movement. Epilogue is so named as an end point for the works - Located Acts 1-7, Lost at Half Light Scenes 1-4 and Tenerbrosity Scene 1 and 2 in which the work is exhibited beside. The video piece is a time-lapse of a storm front which moves throughout Mt Victoria in the Yarra Ranges. It was initially filmed from different vantage points over a number of weeks for a multi-channel projection, yet is only projected in the exhibition as a single channel. The beauty of the clouds as they travel left to right across the frame appear as an allegory for the movements of memory. The blurring of the scene hints at the fuzziness of our recollections and haunting past that can be so hard to recall. For those who are no longer here with us, sleep on. The video is projected at 6mtrs x 9mtrs and actively seeks a physical engagement with the audience via a centrality of vision. The artwork captures a still and yet wavering reality, between moving image, realism, landscape and experience. This is achieved to engage with the multi-sequential narratives surrounding traces of memories and decay visually and theoretically traversed throughout the series. The work is exhibited in the Yarra Ranges, because the work explores the narratives of the decay of memory experienced in this location. Exhibiting here allows a cyclic dialogue with notions of place, home, longing and loss.
