HEAD TURNER

 

Head Turner is exhibited as two separate videos, played simultaneously.  Each video is shown on opposing walls or screens with the viewer positioned between them.  Thus, as one video flashes on and the other flashes off, the viewer is forced to turn their head.  The viewer’s body is manipulated; tricked into mimicking the video.  Head Turner reframes our perception of our bodies and of the space around us.  Turning your head is a simple action, but here, it is not so straightforward.  Here, it is the basis of a relationship; it is momentary oneness with a space and with an image.  Head Turner is intuitive participation.  It prompts the viewer to act and then to consider the implications of their actions.
