Telechiric Loop, 2015
HD Floor Projection onto Acrylic, Video on Monitor.
Through first-person perspective flight goggles, I look down at myself from the hovering drone, which was to act as a guide for my body. I attempt to navigate a circle marked out on field whilst watching/monitoring my own body remotely, in effect severing phenomenological unity. The viewer also finds themself unstabilized during viewing.
It also a play on the dichotomy of being both behind a camera, and in front of it, being your own avatar and having a confusing out of body experience.
Created for In the Epoch of the Near and Far.
