It is a video collage, features depictions of doom and destruction – war, violence and terror – as they appear in cinema, one of our entertainment options. Doomed comprises cut-and paste editing techniques in a highly entertaining and black-humorous take on the bleak side of our current psychological landscape. It looks at both entirely fictional and reconstructed disastrous events. It occupies its own unique symbolism and filmic territory – the poignant, sublime and epic, the tragic, the B-grade and downright trashy. The accumulation of scene, however, within Moffatt’s own essaying, creates a narrative whole comprised of parts. It is important that the title ‘Doomed’ has the quality of the not yet destroyed. It is a description that is applied on individuals, families, lovers, politics, and nations – an observation made from the outside and yet containing the possibility that situations can be salvaged.
It consists of dozens of simulacra of birds’ nests of all shapes and sizes.It is made of monolithics and it includes a number of three-dimensional objects made entirely from minute glass beads threaded onto wire.Using these material because the designer want to make it protective and only by these materials can it be this sculpt to illustrate the meaning in this work. What's more, it is also a symbol of our time that transforms the patterns of nature into the fabric of conflict and hostility.
