Projection, blog (2013 – 2015)
The Obsolescence Project brings the artifacts, noises and silences of our analog past back from the dead, where they are reanimated through a series of projected photographs. These 30 images are culled from Achong’s year-long daily photographic blog of obsolete things, selected to echo the calender format. The blog and images are a kind of quest for the consideration of obsolete things, whether real, owned, borrowed, imaginary or metaphorically obsolete. The work pursues notions of longing, time, trash, residue, and waste, and embraces the residual trace of objects and memories that are discarded, left behind, or junked.
- Deanne Achong’s practice explores concepts of time, narrative and archives, on the web, in photographs, videos, installations and mobile applications. She is currently completing a 3 phase collaborative new media public art project with artist Faith Moosang. Deanne will launch her sea monster app project in Bergen, Norway this August as part of the ELO conference. She is based in Vancouver, Canada.
