MA Show – The MA Fine Art show “Clutching At straws” took place between 29/8/08 until 7/9/08.

The floor projection displayed the documentation of the event over the top of the marks made during the process. The video of the process was overlaid a number of times to blur the boundaries of what occurred in the event and look at our trust in technology.
