Abstract
This thesis is about my progress from photography to video installation. There is an exploration of my use of material, such as light, porcelain, photography and video and the importance of the screen with the pieces. While discussing the use of the screen, attention is paid to the process of using photography and how it evolved from photography to video. There is also a discussion of my progress from thinking two dimensionally within the space, one point perspective of the image, going towards the expansion of the work into the space. Although the work has evolved from photography to video there is a continued interaction between the still and the moving image in my work. At last there is a comparison of my work with artists such as Roni Horn, Mona Hatoum and Kutlug Ataman. Roni Horn was chosen due to her use of photography, how she uses it within the space and her connection to Iceland. Roni Horn's piece You Are the Weather will be compared to my piece Focus. In examining Hatoum's work with beds and comparing it to my piece Together, I will look at the paradoxes in both pieces and also observe her view of the iconic image. Kutlug Ataman explores psychological space and issues of identity, and his thought process will be compared to mine.
