More on Gerrard’s website
Currently showing at the Thomas Dane Gallery
Combination of cinematography, sculpture and a quite nice example of creating a sense of mood with lighting and motion to reveal the subject. Highly recommend visiting this link to a sample vid for a sense of the work – albeit a “web” experience – which not having seen it in person myself I wonder if it has more presence. Wonderful application of the “inherent” qualities of many computer generated realities – that of being a “bit too clean” and eerily sterile which fits perfectly with the subject matter in my opinion and to great effect.
