Stretching out flat / UK / 2005 / 9' / 16:9

Stretching out flat depicts a complex narrative that parallels political aggression with a personal sense of social phobia. The work’s basic premise – a personalised tussle with photographic media – proposes a doubling and a loss of identity in opposition to mass political protest. It is an almost documentary exposé of social helplessness in the face of the small afflictions of everyday life.
