'Jewels in the Dark'

Screenshots from the Jewels in the Dark video

'Jewels in the Dark' is a multimedia installation combining video art, music and language to encourage reflection on themes of equality and diversity.

Across a pangram, each letter of the English language is used, signalling inclusivity: "If we exclude a person’s gaze, we view the world with one less heart; an equal betrayed for more jewels in the dark". The nature of exclusion is conveyed by showing what is lost when a single view is removed from consideration.

The visual, audio and lexical readability is obscured in part, with an increasing deconstruction of the screen, challenging the viewer to question the content and their understanding of it.
