The Siren’s Call
High Definition Triptych Film Installation, 2013
‘The Siren’s Call’ is a triptych life size film installation. The three High Definition films were made in response to the original holographic film installation, ‘The Siren’.
Each of the three underwater film sequences use the clichéd image of a mythical temptress to explore the role of film in seducing the audience. In playing to this preconceived perception, the films transcend the sexual clichés attached to the perception of the Siren and question who really is in control of the gaze: the watcher or the watched?
