Look Out: Pixel Panels

Home Movies 920-1, 2006
It's hard not be mesmerised by Jim Campbell's large-scale works. Utilising digital technologies, live video and real-time electronic manipulation, viewers are immersed into environments that tackle Jim's key themes of light, memory and knowledge. Jim's recent 4 Works exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery in New York delved deeper into his explorations of fathoming the limits of human understanding through the use of large-scale LED grids, which required viewers to negotiate negative space. We're looking forward to seeing images from a new piece commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, due for installation in November 2011.
