The video sequence Perpetual Frieze will be shown for the first time. Inspired by urban gardens on New York’s Lower East Side and Miami’s inner city, it uses photographic fragments collected and compressed over 25 years. Its development and production involved a collaboration with British sound artist and composer Paul Ramshaw, whose work in electro-acoustic sound abstraction and manipulation, coupled with video representation elicits changing emotional contexts over time. This video installation is the first of a number of such collaborations that Fernandez and Ramshaw have planned for the future.
