The Gates, 6:09 min. (2011)
The Gates pairs media footage of the bridal and funeral processions of Princess Diana as both carriages emerge from the gated walls of Clarence House and Kensington Palace, passing before an endless stream of people who have lined the streets to stare in awe and cry.  Inspired by Francesco Pesellino’s Renaissance wedding chest panels “The Triumphs of Love, Chastity and Death”, and “The Triumphs of Fame, Time and Eternity”, The Gates is both a comment on the codependency that exists between the camera, celebrity, and the public and a study of time, mortality and the recorded image.
