The video installation piece "(dis)continuity" reflects a synthesis of motions representation and an examination of the masculine human form. An interplay of both photographic and cinematic techniques depict the acrobat's uncanny movement through space and reflects Eadward Muybridge's and Etienne-Jules Marey's exploration of motion and time as well as their obsession with understanding human physiology. By colliding these two historical modes of representation together this piece explores the paradoxical qualities of cinema as a continuous record of time made up of photographic instants.
