OUTDATED

 

Outdated was a multi-media project co-created with artist Vera Yun-Ju Lee for the Goldsmiths MA Final Shows Festival, June 2019. 

Centered around the climate crisis, the audience is invited to witness a non-linear conversation between two women as  they question previously held aspirations around their futures. Aspirations which may be ‘outdated’ and no longer suited to the coming years. Drawing on ages, dates and dailiness in life, Outdated explores the anxiety, uncertainty and a sense of distance that comes from engaging with the current climate predictions.

Studio 3, Goldsmiths college, June 2019.
