Trampoline

Trampoline

1 min 12 from 7 minutes 32 seconds

Inspired by our obsession with spiritual practices and self-help literature, Trampoline confronts our perseverance of life’s grind in the hope of being rewarded with jouissance.

The incessant jumping, itself a test of endurance over eight hours long, mimics our shackles to daily duty in the same way the real time action suddenly freezes into perfect still or hyper-speed of the fall, life’s unexpected exaltation. Such deliberately irregular editing counteracts any rhythmic trampoline hypnotic, fusing together the two separate performances, and locating the viewer in-between the two conflicting roles of unsuppressed Child, and self-constrained Parent. It attempts to unlock our subconscious memory by engendering the strange surreal; it is here fixed meaning may be effaced and multiplitious identity reigns.
