Portrait of the Artist with his Family (2009)

Portrait of the Artist with his Family
Owen Eric Wood (Canada)
video installation, 2009

In this piece, the artist projects a life-size video portrait of his family and then artificially inserts himself into the image by allowing the projection to engulf a sculpture of himself. The detachment between the physical, sculptural form and the immateriality of the video resonate the emotional distance in the subject matter.
