at the table, 2020
multi-frame video
4 mins 35 secs

at the table is a multi-frame video installation exploring the semiotics of the dinner table in the cultural domestic space. Drawing from Sara Ahmed's theorization of objecthood, orientations, and the performance of the family unit, the piece exhibits family dining occasions. Through video fragmentation and sound application, the work bleeds in and out visually and auditorily to animate feelings inside and outside of the frame - a juxtaposition between ease and tension, tenderness and rage. Divided into 6 frames, the dinners are cropped to create a binary across the table. Interior and exterior sound is used to emote the passive-aggressive regression of the dinner table.
