What is an event? (2021)

Video | Multi-channel video installation

"The world, he says, is made of events, and nothing but events: happenings rather than things, verbs rather than nouns, processes rather than substances. Becoming is the deepest dimension of Being".

-Steven Shaviro on Alfred North Whitehead 


"What is an event?" explores such a proposition through a series of material encounters in a forgotten commercial warehouse. In this building objects are being relocated from an original location to one particular space through a variety of possible routes. This process slowly exposes and re-constitutes the architecture and material environment themselves. "What is an event?" questions the fixity of material reality: how does an object, a building, a person become what is it is? How many routes may be taken, will be taken, have been taken, to get from A to B?
