9/11 before 9/11
2008 – 09
Supported by the Visual Artists Ireland Folkatronica video residency 2008.

A re-creation of the events surrounding September 11, 2001 using only Hollywood productions made prior to that date. 

This piece has been made through a curiosity and exploration of resonating imagery that have been found in pre-9/11 films that depict 9/11-like scenarios.  This has often been discussed amongst conspiracy theorists, yet I have no desire to propose any theories of my own. I see the work as about conditioning, synchronicity, anticipation and fear. The video is a work-in-progress and will change over time as I compile and reorganise more found clips from films. There is almost no sound at present.
