All This Happened (2015) 5 channel video, colour, silent, duration 6:10 minutes, looped

The work comprises 5 silent animated films each depicting different diagramatic representations of analogue colour refractions.  Short texts punctuate simple imagery that together suggest complex relationships between what we see and what we understand.

Moving images are interspersed with short bursts of ambiguous text that could refer to the images displayed or to more contemporary issues. Clements’ use of texts injects verisimilitude through narrative chinks that suggest rather than state directives. Each film’s duration is 6 minutes and ends with the same phrase – ‘Boundaries Dissolve Without Warning’ – displayed across the 5 screens before starting again.
