In A Hundred
2000, 04:00 minutes, colour, English
In A Hundred examines the experience of time; both as an ongoing linear progression, as well as a circular pattern of remembered fragments. The work puts forward the notion that "real" time encompasses both; one
seemingly measured and mathematical, the other incalculable and personal. It is in the fragmented past of memory that the work places its sympathy. As time moves on the mind gathers an ever increasing bank
of stored moments. The place of memory can at times be haunting, but it is also the only place where loss can be momentarily appeased.
In A Hundred is framed by a child counting to one-hundred who becomes the keeper of time, the metronome reminding us of its relentless march forward. While the child creates the framework which guides the video, this progression is broken by other sounds and footage which lead the viewer back in time. This work draws its imagery from vintage Super 8 family films as well as new video footage. The imagery weaves a pattern of time travel which moves inevitably forward but one which carries the past with it. Underlying this obsession with time is an examination of the family via three generations of women; the child counting as the youngest, the video maker as the middle and the video maker's memory (via the Super 8 footage), the past.
