Not I. 2011. Single channel colour video. Silent. 47:00

Not I is a silent single channel video work which takes the original text of Samuel Beckett's 1972 play of the same name and translates it into Morse code. The Morse dots and dashes are masked with images to create pulsing animated photo sequences. Tens of thousands of images, based on the English text, and sourced from the era the play was written flicker across the screen. The spoken English text is translated twice - into images and into code - and these two translations reconfigure monologue as silent landscape.

The work was produced for the THISISPOPBABY art/performance series WERK at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin - Ireland's national theatre.

Made with the support of a bursary from the Irish Arts Council.
