LOOKING AT THE GROUND TO LOOK AT THE SKY
MicroCosmic is an immersive multimedia installation of a sparkling night sky created entirely from footage of puddles in a carpark and audio from cars on a busy road. By distorting camera angles and layering audio, MicroCosmic transforms the sounds and sights of a busy, potholed highway and a mundane carpark into something else, something spooky, beautiful and almost reality. Inspired by sic fi and staring at the night sky as a kid in the country, MicroCosmic explores the construction of perception and the irresistable pull of escapism.
MicroCosmic exhibited solo at Ruffian Gallery for West Projections, was developed into a four channel installation at Testing Grounds and shown as part of a group screening SPAN: Summer shows and screenings at Library at The Dock, Docklands curated by The Food Court ARI.
