Untitled (build a bridge)

 

Untitled (build a bridge) is video that at once builds and de(con)structs.

The word pontiff originally derived from the word pontifex, which was the combination of pont meaning bridge, and fex, from facere, meaning make. Bridges were considered so integral to forging a city, that the most illustrious members of Roman Catholicism were granted the title of ‘Bridge-Maker’.

Sheena Colquhuon won the 2015 Sunshine Coast New Media Art Award with this work.
