Exhibition:

"Frame Seductions"
Pierre Proske


Opening: Tuesday 31 January, 6–8pm
Dates: 31 January – 18 February 2012

'Frame Seductions' is an interactive work that that plays with our expectations of the video frame by creating an immersive and surreal space that lies beyond the traditional borders of the screen.

The project explores the concept of looking outside of the frame by tracking the movements of people immediately in front of a camera-enabled screen. As people turn their head to the left or to the right the image on the screen will follow their gaze beyond the confines of the frame. Viewers will then be able to access material outside of the initial frame, blurring the boundaries between the frame and the hors champ. Lurking in the sidelines of the original image, various mundane but provocative scenarios are playing themselves out much to the surprise of the viewer.

Pierre Proske is an Australian artist intrigued by the pervasiveness of technology in science and culture and its relationship to nature. After years of juggling parallel interests in technology and the arts, Pierre grew tired of the schizophrenia and finally discovered that it was socially acceptable – in fact highly desirable – to merge the two. Consequently he has taken on the ambitious task of rendering computers accountable to our sometimes misplaced but inevitable humanity.
