[ISEA96] Artist Statement: Steven Murgatroyd — Doll

Artist Statement

From Russian dolls and the party game “Pin the tail on the donkey”, “Doll” finally emerged as an animated freakshow attraction. A freak trapped in the cartesian space of Harriet’s 3D paste up programme, which through trial and error developed arms and legs and avoided a lengthy narrative, only to end up inside Leonardo’s universally recognisable World In Action drawing. Was that it’s destiny ? Or was it being manipulated by some vey intelligent circles and squares?

  • Steven Murgatroyd, UK. “I studied fine art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, Scotland, and started using a bit of video for installations in the final year of my BA. They had a relatively new post graduate course called Electronic Imaging that specialised in video and computer based art, and after graduating I stuck around and did that” cinefex.com/blog/spotlight-steve-murgatroyd
