NOT AN HOUR, NOT A DAY (2014)
Sound and Video Installation, 2014
"Surely it is a failure of our human design that it takes not an hour, not a day, but much, much longer to relay what flashes through the mind with the speed of a hummingbird's wing." - Shani Mootoo
Not an Hour, Not a Day is a video installation by Bambitchell that questions how we come to understand ourselves, others and our environments. Inspired by Shani Mootoo’s Moving Forward Sideways Like a Crab and commissioned by ‘The Word on the Street Festival’, this installation, projected onto a body of water revisits the spaces and stories of the duo’s childhoods in order to focus on the fluidity and impermanence of memory.
A video with documentation of the installation which includes the projections on water (into a 4'' x 2'' x 2" fish tank) can be viewed here.
