‘SciFi’ DAVID CARSON
IN ASSOCIATION WITH CITY OF MANDURAH STRETCH ARTS FESTIVAL
Exhibition dates: Friday 4 May / Sunday 24 June.
This exhibition called Sci-fi is an unashamed homage to various classic science fiction films, each rendered out as a single wide-panoramic unique print. The images are produced using a process called slitscanning, used to great effect for the stargate sequence in Stanley Kubrick’s classic movie 2001 a Space Oddyssey.
In this exhibition each movie has been rendered out as an image-sequence of many thousands of individual frames, which are then processed with bespoke programming software which automates the slitscanning process (program developed by astrophysicist and imaging specialist Dr. Paul Bourke.) .
The resulting images can then be read from left to right, seeing the beginning and end of the film simultaneously, a process analogous to Presentism, a philosophy of time, which proposes that neither the future nor the past exists.
Carson has been involved with experimental imaging technologies for many years, including time-lapse video capture. His work has been an extension of this aspect of visual research and current works are meditations on the passage of time (in space) and the way perceptions can be altered or distorted to represent a spatial and temporal experience. There are several series of still images which are extractions from long image sequences taken over time, as long as 365 days, – condensed into single images read from left to right.
