OCCIPUT documents the awkward confrontation of one’s stochastic personality, steeped in processes of self-exile and reckoning, mirrored in natural worlds’ expansive and diachronic narratives in motion. Poetically eclectic, intoxicatingly non-sequitur, each fragment reveals its humble frailty. The two-channel video echoes the titular intention, alluding to the brain area responsible for vision, the stereoscopic ability to merge disparate information. Each of the cardinal works serves as self-reflexive monument in a topographical map depicting the failure of a human relationship. It honors the violent shifts in awareness, which take place when the tranquil, protective surface above is betrayed by unseen structural fissures.
