Phillip Barker's Strange Universe I: 1984-2008

I Am Always Connected

Nominees and Awards


I Am Always Connected is about inseparable connections, like those between light and shadow, the mind and the body, the rational and the instinctual. It is a new construction from footage originally made for a 1984 installation piece for the Lumen Travo, a gallery in Amsterdam. The original Super 8 film was projected hundreds of times in a loop. The footage was filmed on a small country road near Nijmegen, The Netherlands. The canvas backdrop was painted based on photographs taken at the location.
