Eye Witness – China

A video installation set in six white cube-rooms where we see a succession ill fated characters caught in a continuous loop from which there seems to be no escape.

Eye witness was showcased at ‘Vis-A-Vis’ Art Lab at CO2 United Creative Space, Sevenstar Main Street, 798 Art Zone, Beijing.

In this way audiences became witnesses as a succession of characters were caught in a continuous loop from which there seemed to be no escape. The performance can be seen as a series of never-ending cliff-hangers. 

Following a successful run at Tramway, the show toured nationally to Halifax and Darlington  and to Beijing.
