Nine Metre Web Object (2005)

The ‘Nine-metre web object’ is a component of ‘Host - Guest Plus Host Equals Ghost’ - an ongoing project concerned with a fantastic voyage undertaken by an ingested camera during capsule endoscopy. The web object is a composite, combining numerous images produced during the seven and a half hour, nine-metre journey of a peristalsis controlled, auto-documenting camera. The images have been configured to produce a continuous, anthropometric nine-metre flow of material, corresponding to the length of the GI tract. ‘Host’ is an ongoing (2004-5) project that has evolved from a series of work concerned with exposing aspects of interiority, metabolic functionality, reflex responses to external stimuli and the bodily sensorium.
