Hauling/It is not the past but the present that determines the future
David Raymond Conroy's Hauling… is video loop presenting a back-and forth unfurling of hoarded images culled from style blogs. Alongside this a separate audio monologue astutely describes and discusses the conditions of online browsing and the resulting anxiety that these new conditions of looking, connecting and interacting create.
The work also exists as sculpture, presented on a monitor as part of an assemblage featuring distressed jeans and alcohol-free beer.
Hauling/It is not the past but the present that determines the future, was screened at Open File, Virtual Space/Digital Trace, Grand Union, December 2011
