Ambulance

Sophie Lavence
2005

'Ambulance' is a video work exploring the act of viewing. The work seeks to question the dichotomy of spectator and spectacle. Obscured domestic figures and images of crowds exchange disengaged glances. As they slowly fade in and out, side by side, these figures are simultaneously bonded and yet divided by the blackness of the screen. A dissonance arises as the notions of voyeur and viewer become confused. Binary conditions are dissolved, and monochromatic alarm emerges. The eye of the viewer has become dislocated, and is left to question the worth of what it is really seeing.
