Essay on my work by Yvette Hamilton on page 30
Photo post by @bloodonsilk.
A table top set up with viewing positions like a peep show allows the viewer to look down into a surreal landscape of homogenised real and play or pretend medicalised equipment, as it is washed by the projections of a slow bleeding out. The world within the surreal landscape is controlled and contained where its boundaries operate like a semi permeable membrane with some things held and others allowed to pass.
When the viewer bends to look into the peep holes/microscope lenses set into the bottom of everyday glass kitchen and tableware the projections then show on the back of their heads co-opting them into the landscape but not necessarily requiring their informed consent.
