(2011) – Video Performance, 10 min.
Hilbert space is a single channel video performance about grief, memory, liminal space and our ongoing relationship with the dead.
“In the world of pure mathematics, Hilbert space is a theoretical space of unlimited or infinite dimensions. It is the basis for quantum mechanics and the study of thermodynamics. My father was a mathematician and his specialty was Hilbert space.”
Suspended overhead, a large silk screen is manipulated with cables as the film is projected onto it. The audience sits on the ground, watching the world from below.
