Exhibition 6 April to 5 May, 2002
On The Eye presented new lens based work by Belfast artist Susan MacWilliam. Using video footage, shot during residencies in New York and Trinidad, projected images of a lightning storm, ceiling fans and mountain mist flicker, strobe and stutter. In contrast to the moving images MacWilliam showed a series of still stereoscopic (3D) images. These were observed through special lenses and created an intimate viewing experience. The artist’s interest in photography, visual perception, after image and how we read depth and movement were explored.
Susan MacWilliam (born Belfast 1969) lives and works in Belfast.
