Audit (my own worst enemy) (2010-11) grew out of my playing around with a 1960’s camera macro bellows attached to an HD camera. I decided I wanted to make a kind of audit of my aging body. I had been reading a lot about embodied cognition and the nature of perception. About how vision, for example, is not a merely passive act (whereby light falls on the retina) but is an active and directed process - more like how we think about touch.
The soundtrack consists of extracts from the Apollo missions, particularly stuff relating to approaching surfaces (landing, docking). The hyper-rationality of the soundtrack contrasts with the ambiguous softness of the image.
