Gumbo Limbo is a mirror-like video work exploring perception and the way we interpret images of our lives. This interactive video-memory work takes its name from the gumbo limbo tree, known for constantly shedding its bark in very thin paper-like layers. A keen observer of events, the work thrives on absorbing images from its environment over time, nourished by the possibilities of its surroundings. Visions of ourselves are captured, processed and unfolded in layers of video– spontaneous, unblinking. Gumbo Limbo renders the process of constructing personal mythologies null: in every second of the viewer’s real-time interaction, history is being rewritten over itself. Mythology falls away, destiny is rearranged– as if time were being shed and new meanings revealed underneath.
