[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Justin Harvey – I SIT INSIDE YOU CRYING

Artist Statement

HD Video (2015)

I Sit Inside You Crying transforms images from a domestic environment into three-dimensional glitch artifacts. Images of a house in Sydney are refracted and simplified until they become abstract structures. The work explores how we make meaning in a contemporary mediascape awash with imaging platforms and their inherent glitches.

  • Justin Harvey (born 1975, Australia) is a media artist specialising in the aesthetics of glitch. His multi-channel installations have featured in solo and curated exhibitions in Australia and internationally.
