[ISEA2013] Curator Statement: Volker Kuchelmeister – Point of View

Curator  Statement

Presented by the College of Fine Arts and ISEA2013, this exhibition explores the boundaries between real and virtual space and the relationship between observer and observed. It utilises electronic media to investigate the limitations that traditional ocular optics put on our perception of mediated imagery, while also exploring and exploding the boundaries of the cinematic image. Point of View questions our understanding of place, representation and perspective.
An exhibition of work by Josh Harle, Chris Henschke and Volker Kuchelmeister.
