Angle Iron, Two-Way Mirrored Acrylic, Projection.

Drawing from Levinas’ Otherwise than Being or Beyond Essence, the work examines points of tension created by proximity and distance between site-specificity, historical warfare, and psychological warfare propagating in virtual spaces. The video intervention appears at a crucial time when, globally, there is an alarming increase of unequal access to mobility and communication. Using two-way mirrors as projection surfaces to critique the marriage of surveillance and virtual areas, the installation questions the politics of memory in virtual, physical, and epistemological spaces.
