Configurations (2008) - Coloring the Virtual




Jim Campbell's sculptural installations and filmic images have pioneered new ways of looking: the closer you get to the images, the more intangible they become. The more you perceive their moving-stillness, the more they move you. This essay explores how Campbell's work creates propositions for vision that alter not only how an image is seen in its framed stability, but how the instability of its composition occasions kinesthetic experience, activating a lively dialogue between the analog and the digital in a way that calls forth the future cinematic.
