Disorient is a large scale double screen HD installation where the two screens are hung on opposite walls. One projection shows the filmed set with an ambient and suggestive soundtrack. The other projection shows a montage of recent news/current affairs footage with the voice-over of excerpts from Marc Polos Travels. The first screen is larger with a clearly audible soundtrack while the soundtrack to the second screen can only be heard by standing underneath hanging speakers. Disorient explores perceptions of the oriental in relation to issues such as colonialism, identity, human history, myth and war. Presented by the Art Fund through Art Fund International.
