To Be King Installation


Projection: 15minutes, 45 seconds. An interweaving of stop-frame animation using a monotype printing process and live-footage.

Frame: 2600 x 3000. The frame is made of wood and has been designed to imitate the frame of Las Meninas in the Prado, Madrid.

Sculpture:  55 x 60 x 1 740. Materials: Urethane resin, fabric and wood.

Guard: A ‘museum’ guard, dressed in a uniform with To Be King insignia.
