Tension Sets (2013)

Tension Sets is a 6 channel video and sound work that uses the sound of the amplified voice in performance, as both a literal (technical) and speculative force of change within the videos. The  documentation of the performance is treated as separate to the event itself and taken up as a space in which to speculate about the capacity of the voice to effect, move or engage with its surrounding environment through visual form.

Tension Sets was commissed for Primavera: Young Australian Artists 2013, curated by Robert Cook at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
