Motions (a video simulation of a web book)

Motions takes human trafficking and contemporary slavery as its focus. Human trafficking is an accelerating form of crime and is a world-wide problem. It is one of the darker outcomes of globalization, the breakdown of the nation-state, and increasing ease of travel.

Static and moving, variable and sequential, the piece presents programmed text, image and music fragments to evoke the subjective experience of enslavement in motion. No single ‘page’ is ever the same, but the work moves forward with a linear progression.
