Constructed through the manipulation of photographic film, Horizon is a multichannel video and photographic installation about the systemisation of human vision.

Proposing that our internalisation of the camera has caused a kind of terminal blindness to the natural world, the work explores its premise metaphorically, through post photographic and structuralist video techniques of making. Here, film is imagined as an iris—a boundary between world and viewer. Television screens in a vertical configuration are employed as virtual window frames—a ‘Zero Point’ of architecture—transmitting manipulated footage of the immediate space, and mirroring the glass high rise buildings visible from the gallery’s windows.

This project is supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grant

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
