While in the installation room with the green screen set up I also brought my cage in that was created last year. I've never been completely satisfied with the use of the cage as it was intended as a performance prop and ended remaining inanimate and unfulfilling. I'd noticed with the way I had originally displayed the work on my site that I landmarked each time I had displayed it as if it is in a state of transformation. This was unconscious of course but upon reflection it became clear I had a need to make this object move from it's heavy physical design. Playing around with various effects after keying the background and various shadows out I was left with a video that existing much less physical. I remember it being given a number of observations from a cage, instrument and even hanging basket- there is something intangible about it's design. It exists in a state that suggests one thing but never quite manifests enough to pin it down. Slightly rocking it in the footage has given it a whole new existence in digital format. The sculpture has become somewhat temporal, it's presence slipping more closely in line with an absence of sorts.
