The Hut and Mere Tyrannies solo exhibition
A new 2.5D photo-cinema in 21:9 HD
The Hut (2017) is an ultra HD photo-cinematic work in 2.5D video projection in 21:9 aspect ratio. Never before used in photography, the technique embodies the idea of ‘Elastic Photography’, photomedia imbued will the illusion of depth (no special 3D glasses required). The Hut is set in a ‘nowherescape’, a liminal hinterland of collapsible time that is at once bittersweet, life-affirming and deadly.
The Hut (5/4) (excerpt) at SOA+D Gallery, ANU, Canberra, March 2017.
Briefly screened in Canberra using ANU Photography and Media Art’s powerful 12k lumen building projector the work measures 6m x 14m. Comprised of 24 scenes each programmed never to repeat in the same permutation, The Hut explores the indexical lamination of memory, history, narrative and reality afforded by photography imbued with the illusion of spatial dimensionality. Shown as part of my PhD research, it investigates the notion that far from freezing a ‘slice of time’ photography reanimates perception through sensation rendering duration flexible and elastic.
The Hut features work created in South Australia, the ACT, the United States and the Outer Hebrides and Shetland Islands of Scotland.
