"6 collages of the exact same size were created to approximate the size of an HD video screen. The 6 collages when played frame by frame create a chaotic 6-frame animation.  HD video is juxtaposed with collage in an attempt to reconcile the difference between images "trapped" behind a screen and those "frozen forever" as still images. In today's image landscape traditional distinctions between moving and static, linear and non-linear no longer apply. Perhaps one of the only enduring distinction is the separation between images on and off screen. The resulting diptych evokes a disorienting head-space within which our subject, a young girl in a skull mask, stares  at herself in a mirror, attempting to come to terms with the impossible gap between original and copy, or self and self-image.
