Tomorrow Is Our Permanent Address (2008)


High Definition Video Installation with glasses
6 mins 15 secs



Tomorrow Is Our Permanent Address oscillates between a mysterious, futuristic cityscape and the artist's studio. In this floor to ceiling video projection with an installation of hundreds of drinking glasses, the viewer is transported to a dream-like environment where control is played out against lack-of-control.

The audience is taken in unexpected directions, virtually knocking glasses down which shatter into pieces around them. The interaction of the video projection with the towers of glasses creates a further element - a silhouette of another uncanny cityscape.

Tomorrow Is Our Permanent Address disorientates the viewer's sense of scale. Whilst the broken glasses on the floor alludes to the aftermath of a catastrophic event.
