I Do Not Understand The Question You Feel
Video Installation with projection, audio and text ( Duration - 5.55 )
I Do Not Understand The Question You Feel combines automatic writing with disjointed visuals to represent both the disjointed narrative of dreams and the difficulty in recalling the detail of dreams once awake. Each short clip represents a different dream narrative, exploring a variety of themes that Sorcha has experienced within her own dreams. The videos often use an overlay of images disrupted by static noise to create abstract visuals that are seemingly following an unknown timeframe as in dreaming.
In Interim Exhibition the video was presented alongside an extended version of the automatic text that is included as part of the work. The viewer was invited to sit on artificial grass whilst watching the video with a projection of clouds passing by placed above them. The installation allowed the viewer to be in both a familiar and unfamiliar setting, that echoed the surreal nature of dreaming.
I do not understand the question you feel
Have a lie in today
Feel my breath, embrace it, suck it in
A joke unrecognised by a stranger
Shame might follow
You said, you never said,
I wanted you to say, You didn't say
Why do I go this way?
