Camera Obscura Films
Mixed media installation. 2005 - 2010.
These explore and extend the artistic potential of camera obscura projections to perceptually transform objects and spaces by using their unique visual qualities. These pertain to immediacy and directness, and possess a unique visual 'feel' where two dimensional imagery strongly suggests three dimensions. Although apparently tangible, projected imagery appears to reside in a void where there is an absence of surrounding visual reference.
Unlike conventional camera obscura projections, these installations present a more complex perceptual experience for the viewer. This involves synchronicity, juxtaposition, transparency and transition and the manipulation of ordinary objects. Observers are invited to temporarily step outside their normal world to encounter intriguing and compelling visions of the surreal or uncanny.
