Postcards From A Holiday, 2004

Four Channel Video Installation on DVD loop
Duration 30 minutes

Postcards From A Holiday features four couples on individual screens; each couple poised, with bags
packed, ready to go on holidays.  They, however, do not go anywhere and only continue to wave goodbye for the duration of their thirty-minute loop. 
The couples are trapped in the interior of video, and one of video’s formal functions, the loop, is used to convey this.  Their entrapment in a position of just-about-to-leave, an animated snapshot of a classic image of a departing couple, alludes to there being no escape, or even holidays.
