The Supremacy of Thought (The Ineffectiveness of Action)  2012

Three-minute video edit based on slide sequence

Series of eighty 35mm slides projected in sequence; dimensions variable.

The work chronicles a journey made by a mackerel from a residential building in Berlin to a nearby stretch of canal. Texts describing the mackerel’s innermost thoughts accompany images of its passage through the city. The texts are based on the interior monologues of Mrs Ramsay in Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse.

The work has been shown at solo exhibition A to Z: From Aardvark to Axle, Galerie Art Claims Impulse, Berlin in 2013; and The Alumni Show, Markeaton Street Gallery, University of Derby, UK in 2012-13.
