'Gap': Audio DVD (02m18s), Jan 2009

In this project, I am exploring the gap that characterises any understanding or interpretation of theory. There is a certain gap between what the author intended and between how the theory is actually understood by the reader. I have found this gap sometimes very wide when I read a certain theory, and sometimes it is very narrow. I am trying to articulate this gap through sound and images. This is my first attempt at realising this idea. I have recorded the sound of a mature adult male voice reading Benjamin’s theory on Photography and a young boy reading an interpretation of that theory.
