Latest exhibition @ 36 Lime Street, Cath Campbell

@ 36 Lime Street Gallery

Gallery opening times:
Saturday 18th & Saturday 25th January, 12pm – 5pm

there will be time, there will be time presents four new large-scale photographic prints by Cath Campbell.

Each image captures a moment from a video of a stranger’s tour of the Empire State Building, found by the artist on YouTube. Subtitled by Google translate, the original narrative accompanying the video is transformed into something strangely compelling and poetic. Divorced from their original language and visual progression, the images become cinematic escapes into the unknown.

Using virtual means to travel the world, Cath Campbell appropriates found images, films and stories, to create scenarios of vicarious adventure and exploration, deliberately challenging notions of truth, reality and desire.

2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,100 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
