Triple Fate (1986)

Single monitor Installation with game, water, sound, video and photographs.

Science Fiction is no longer fiction, its fact - an extension of the present. I like the notion of changing it. Stealing the time-travel appeal of fiction and do constructing what society considers to be mythological facts. I'm interested in a new kind of female technology, stirring the historical pot, jumbling sounds and images from media and text, toying with the notion of a twisted future.

[In Triple Fate] A woman finds herself in a cretan labyrinth being chased by a Minotaur, then in an urban street pursued by a detective, then in the future where strange things just happen to change.1

Actors: Roslyn Oxley and Luigi Scotti.
Sound: The Dynabytes.
