Four Creatures With Four Faces

2009. Video.

Four Creatures With Four Faces was a meditation on the hyper short video loop, with imagery inspired by the biblical vision of Ezekiel.

The ‘creatures’ were each given four faces temporally rather than spatially. They were created through a process of cut and paste, following the Old Testament passage:

And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings... and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. ...they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.

 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man,and the face of a lion, on the right side: And they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
