Infinite deferral of meaning
HSC year: 2010, ARTEXPRESS year: 2011
Expressive form: Time-based forms
My work is a visual exploration of the linguistic philosophies of the postmodern theorists Derrida, Lacan and Lyotard, who informed my understanding of language as an endless play of signification. The practice of Kosuth and Bill Viola inspired me with their representations of tautology and dualism respectively. Language, a ‘floating chain of signifiers’, is constantly creating and deconstructing, fundamentally linked to notions of identity generated from binary opposites and their fusion. Creation begins with an idea. The idea is in the word. And God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light (Genesis 1:3).
