Artifact Cartoons

Artifact Cartoons is an image based research of Australian environments, comparing the polarities of desert and rainforest systems.  This multi-screen installation resolves animistic video entities based on videographic impressions of landscape and plays both on the eye and phenomenology of the perceiver.  The perceiver perceives the actual environment and also its virtual copy in the camera and a phenomenological impressionism takes places in-between.  All experience of our environment is one of being in-between.  "We are in a web of perception, determining from the inside." -David Abram on Merleau-Ponty's EcophenomenologyAlso shown at Critical Path (right)
