Doubleplay - 03


Doubleplay features a triptych of photographs showing images on a computer screen of an individual watching a live football match whilst simultaneously playing a football video-game, with his gaze split between the two, the simulation offsetting the representation, foregrounding the remediation of one format in another, mirrored in the re-photographing of the low-resolution, mobile phone picture.

Double-play is a term borrowed from reel-to-reel tape specifications, since used in conjunction with commercial Blu Ray disks releases, when a film is distributed as a DVD and Blu Ray in the same case, so it can be played across formats.

This triptych is continued in Tripleplay.
