Four Screen Animation, 2018

 Canvas Frames, projectors

The Holding Time Animation is designed to be presented as a four screen animation where the viewer has the opportunity to stand in a central position as all twenty three mothers breastfeed in succession. Central to the animation is the Timepiece, which grows using Cosmatesque design incorporating scale as a measure, rather than the numbers of a traditional clock. Inviting viewers to ‘spend’ time with the mothers, we are able to experience the virtual togetherness of a circle of breastfeeding mothers. The installation incorporates sound performed and composed by Helen A. Wilson.
