Diving presents the ways in which a colonial Indian upbringing shapes the subsequent post-Independence life and relationships of an English woman.
Diving originated as a live multimedia performance with: live and pre-filmed actors; found footage; improvised music; and archival elements. It is presented both as an installation of multiple-viewpoint projections, and, co-jointly, as a single-channel film. It forms part of my research into: the spatial layering; temporal arrangements; and points of view afforded by the digital narratives generated through the hybrid assemblage of multimedia elements and live action.
Arne Sjögren works with multimedia to explore fictionalised interpretations of historical events derived from family interviews, archives and personal memories.
