Two Thousand and Three.
Two Thousand and Three is a filmstrip consisting of that many frames. On each of the individual film frames a different person appears, photographed during the massive protest marches against the war in Iraq, in London, in 2003. The installation presents two copies of the same film, the first copy is seen on the projection screen; the viewer is bombarded by the frenetic forward march of almost subliminal images. The second copy is presented in a light box table; studying the separate frames with a small magnifying loupe, visitors can form a more intimate, contemplative engagement with this series of discrete individuals. A teeming composite of details and fragments, it vividly captures the sense of individuals converging, a part and yet apart.
