'News Reader Pause', Video montage, 2017 - Current

A work in progress montaging together clips from BBC and Sky News reporters. I'm drawn to the pause before a news reader speaks. This delay to me is a reminder of being human. It makes me think of the technology behind the television, the systematic reading of placards, the mechanical eye movements. The pause is the breath. It is  the activation of life from machine.
