100 People

25 June 2008

Single-channel video. 18 Minutes. 2007.

100 People conjures the imaginary presence of one hundred people, each of whom exists only by virtue of brief descriptions on screen. Framed as ‘a kind of minimalist anti- (or virtual) cinema’, the work’s simple presentation of unfolding text on a black background investigates the dynamic capacity of language itself to create images and to summon presence.
