William Matheson

In his two channel video work Para, William Matheson explores the many unsettling connotations of that prefix – including paranormal, paranoia and parasite. The video presents the relationship between hornworms and parasitoid wasps, who leave their larvae to gestate in the worms. It evokes fears of the body as a precarious site of conflict and multiplicity.
