Spirit Photography

Sculptural Installation / 3D animation / Video - Three Channel


In this work, a miniature chair sits starkly in the exhibition surrounded by an assemblage of vintage hardware whose myriad cameras fix their lenses on the chair. A jungle of cabling runs through a structure of finely tuned devices whose esoteric mesh allow for the viewing of small spirits, animated beings alive in the light of the electric signal. As we watch, spirits enter and exit, coming to sit and express themselves expanding an imaginal layer to reality of a world of beings hovering just outside of the visible. Spirit Photography explores the growing relationship between our evolution of technologies for imaging and seeing the world through the light of the moving image and our connection to imaginal and the dreamscape.
