The Agent

2 May – 20 May 2018

Exhibition Opens 6pm Wed 2 May 2018

The Agent is a multi-media animation and sound installation which uses light as a metaphor for surveillance and online image culture. Light in this context allows us to reflect, observe, illuminate and capture images and ideas but is also captures our likeness and identity. The various elements within the work come together as a deliberately complex contraption (a type of Rube Goldberg machine) in which a series of devices and events are linked together to produce a domino effect. Through animation and sound the work combines slapstick humour with the anxiety of being consistently being watched and reflected.
