Seen / Unseen: Again

2005 (1973)

The frame of the camera in 1973 leaves unseen what the artist can see. These initial experiments with the new medium of video were revisited in 2005 using digital video to develop the precept. The original B&W video (seen) was made using a Sony Portapak (unseen) that had been acquired by Exeter College of Art where I had begun lecturing in 4D studies in 1972. In 2005 whilst pursuing PhD research at the University of Technology Sydney, I responded to a Call for work celebrating the Portpak. The new video (again) was first installed at Videomedja festival, Novi Sad, Bosnia, 2005. The objects remain, unseen. (2007) Original format : Digital Video and DVD.
