In my work I have been interested in thinking through film. The possibility of an opening up of perception through a rendering of the known as unknown through altering the observational ‘position’ of an audience. The isolation of objects in order to make them strange, making their context unknown in order to ‘see’ them. The apparent displacement of objects through that which Zizek defines as a Parallax view.
