FOSSIL FLIES

2019

04:00 min looped video of flies projected on to 22 genuine fossil insects in rock that are stuck on a 47″x33″ print which is mounted on a piece of wood of the same size wood.

In Fossil Fuels (2019) I project videos of flying insects directly on to pieces of insects fossilized in rock, as if animating the genuine, thousand-year-old insect fossils to life. The rocks are mounted onto print of a home interior from the same series as the interiors in Literature of Storms. Here too I am connecting the domestic with the natural world, and teasing out the tension between a safe, man-made sheltered environment and that of the external natural world, which cannot be controlled or predicted.
