Ceremoniously (2009)


In this 3-channel video installation, I compiled footage of crowds and audiences performing rituals of appreciation and support.  Such gestured acts as applauding, cheering and standing ovations are traditionally reserved for performers, athletes and people who have demonstrated some form of public impact.  In this piece, I am examining these rituals while directing the gaze towards the viewer.  By projecting large-scale videos with sound on three walls of the gallery space, the viewer is visually confronted and bombarded at the receiving end of these emotive gestures.
