Curator Graham Domke introduces the work of American artist, Jim Campbell. Indirect Imaging is the first ever UK solo exhibition of his work, and he presents a series of light sculptures derived from simple films – birds in flight or commuters walking.
Jim Campbell was born in Chicago in 1956 and lives in San Francisco. He studied Mathematics and Engineering at MIT in the late 1970s and has since worked in filmmaking, interactive video and LED light technology. His background in electrical engineering, mathematics, photography and filmmaking enables him to make immersive works that explore the space between the representative and the abstract.
Indirect Imaging is on at Dundee Contemporary Art until the 25th January 2015.
