CCA Introducing is a series of 24 hour social media takeovers by emerging artists. Each artist has been nominated by an artist or curator connected to CCA. The recommendation to invite Perce to participate in CCA Introducing came from artist Miguel Martin, who hosted his solo exhibition Put to the Sword at CCA Derry~Londonderry in 2016.

‘Our Time’ has been edited and produced by myself throughout the past year, in essence it is an audio/visual essay that examines our now ubiquitous daily interaction with online media. Despite this project having been conceived and created during this time, there are no direct references to COVID-19, although the project is evocative of our current feelings of collective paranoia and isolation. Instead, the film is reminiscent of the randomness of a social media feed or of Youtube’s autoplay algorithm, as it juxtaposes a mixture of tonally dissonant shot and found elements.
