Betsy Dadd – the fracturing of a projected image. A modest sized image projected onto a wall, interrupted by a mirrored panel that pulls one’s feet into the shot. The mirror also throws the missing slice of the projection, enlarged, onto the opposite wall. (2)

Lara Lee – the hovering projection. Fabric screen, TV screen sized, weighted / rod-stiffened at the top & bottom, suspended on fishing wire. In the darkness, the screen appears to hover in the middle of the room. (2)
