Artist Statement:


    An installation juxtaposing a flock of mass-produced contemporary cyber/kitsch bird alarm clocks perching on a wall of graphic design with an audio/video performance and two streaming webcasts. Intended to heighten viewers’ sense of place, awareness of their own sensory perceptions and limitations, and how technology mediates that experience, it deliberately conflates the places that popular culture, the natural world and art occupy in our lives. The work also points to the relationship between the real and virtual experience, whilst the use of live-streamed audio and video is both an ironic reflection on the dysfunctional nature of surveillance in contemporary life, and a pointer to the changes technology is making in our perceptual space.  jennygillam.com   vjrex.info
