SHIVER and DISAPPEAR (2012)
Artereal Gallery Project Space
SHIVER and DISAPPEAR are two video objects that respond to the viewer's presence. In DISAPPEAR a surveillance camera captures a live video image of the exhibition space and relays it to the screen. However a temporal delay is added to the image so that time appears to stretch. Moving objects and people disappear from the live image. Surveillance camera images, usually associated with the 'all seeing eye' and used as criminal evidence, here give an altered view of reality.
SHIVER shows images that have been mapped onto a specially designed chair. These MRI scan images show different layers of the body. Organs and muscle tissue are visible beneath the skin. The changing images are activated by the presence of the viewer. As the viewer approaches SHIVER, one layer of the body is peeled back to reveal another.
SHIVER and DISAPPEAR were shown at Artereal Gallery's Project Space in September 2012. The exhibition was curated by Matt Glenn and accompanied by a short catalogue essay.
