Glimpse







Glimpse comprises a 5 minute video featuring sounds of the big bang, a set of eight posters designed by Adam Cruickshank, a glass blown meteorite, metal stand with lead weight and photograph of an interior detail of the Abbotsford Convent.

Glimpse 
explores contingent processes. It is drawn from a larger project investigating the relations between things and forces across differing temporal and spatial scales. This project focuses on bodies both animate and inanimate congregating in multiple assemblages, generating multiple variations. The event of these relations does not distinguish in advance for whom it will make a difference or in what way. The difference between before and after is a problem posed for a future it creates.

Thanks to Polly Stanton, Sophie Takach and Matt Wood for camera work, and Polly Stanton for sound. Convent film crew: Kay Abude, Jon Butt, Jonathan Carmichael, Chantelle Mitchell, Geoff Robinson, Isabella Wren and Benjamin Woods. Also Brent King and Sary Zananiri for the glass blown meteorite, Jethro Harcourt for fabrication assistance and Adam Cruickshank for poster concept and designs.
