Remotely in Touch


1998, 15:00 minutes, colour, English


Poetic and surreal, Remotely In Touch explores what we perceive as an image; what is 'real'; what is constructed or science fiction; and what are our new codes of signification created by systems of information. Remotely in Touch uses images created by remote digital signals - sent via satellite or robotic camera - and juxtaposes these with analog video images encapsulating a 'visceral moment' or an 'embodied movement'.
Imagery include: blood cells from the artist captured through an electronic microscope; the Pathfinder mission to Mars; ultrasound imaging; an underwater volcano; exploratory surgery using a robotic camera; wing chun martial arts; images from the Human Genome Project; satellite imagery of the earth's surface... all lyrically woven together with text and audio, utilizing a philosophical yet humorous sense of metaphor and meaning.
