Death Is Something (2014) is made up of two 16mm films looping continuously, one produced with black and white high contrast stock and the other with colour reversal stock. The first film portrays ten individuals who have experienced the loss of someone close. Each sitter was filmed frame-by-frame, where the shutter was manually triggered and the flash was fired at various intervals, resulting in underexposed footage with sporadic pulses of exposed frames. The second film is of a twelve year old girl- whom I have seen grow for ten years- having her portrait taken. The dialogue between the two films asks the viewer to consider their relationship with memory and the tension that exists between the representation of absence and presence.
