35mm Slide Photographs & HD Video (3mins), 2013.

This project was photographed and filmed in a disused communist bathhouse in Prague. The characters’ appearances morph throughout the series of photographs, creating a fragmented narrative of their transformation. In the video, the ringing telephones signal an impending horror which never materialises. The telephone is used as a motif, employing its cinematic associations repeatedly to create a symbolic anticipation. Their search for the ringing telephones, within the surreal and irrational parameters of the scene, results in disorder.
