I Number the Stars
2004, installation with electronic sculpture and discs
The first season of the original 1960s “Star Trek” series is broken down into a series of shots. Each shot is categorised by the artists according to a variety of keywords such as ‘events’, ‘objects’ and ‘emotions’. The clips associated with each keyword are assembled on a video CD. Each CD is labelled with a sentence beginning with the word ‘I’ that describes an action or a state of being, such as ‘I am sick’. The CDs are installed on a browsable shelf in the gallery, next to the suitcase, in which CDs can be played one at a time.
