My video art utilizes archive film and television material, which I then dismantle and re-contextualize through editing in post-production. Therefore, my adaption of a hypnotic levitation which has had black frames inserted, runs parallel with the psychological hypnotic qualities of film and television, and how this medium and unknowingly to the viewer put them in a trance like state, making them suggestionable.
I have also edited a famous advert from ‘Lynx: Angels will fall’, utilising hypnotic techniques through sound such as back masking. Through digitally editing and reversing footage, it brings from the subconscious to the conscious televisions hypnotic qualities, and it makes it apparent how strange it is that although we watch television everyday, we do not realise how completely odd it is to have both sound and frames of images streamed to the viewer within the confines of a little black box.
