Maia Conran - Term

Rating: 

No votes yet

Maia Conran's split screen work Term, mirrors a series of still and tracking video shots of the interior spaces of a disused school with its animated monochrome copy, that mimicks scene for scene the original video footage. Throughout the work Conran invites us to consider what is more real, the video of the school or its animated reconstruction, leading to a progressive condensation of reality, as the animated version slowly invades the authentic space of the video.
