"It’s me…I’m here where’re you?" explores the relationship between space and light projection in the research field of contemporary art and installation. Using this unique opportunity to further develop and investigate the cultural shifts in communication technologies over a 50 year period from within the ABC archive. This immersive work exposes telephone conversations, both public and private alike.
This unique opportunity allowed for innovation of an artwork from within the (sometimes) buried archive of ABC TV. In close collaboration with ABC archive researchers, "It’s me…I’m here where’re you?" used 50 years of telephone conversations generated by Australian drama. This archive project researched the everyday use and development of communication and television technology. This work resulted in a high definition dual projection, addressing shifts in time and reflectivity. The film footage was constructed by generating a complex compositing technique, combining up to ten layers of ghost like film quotations. This produced a reconstruction of history with an ethereal perspective.
Originally this work was exhibited in "Yours mine ours: 50 years of abc TV" Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest 2006 and was curated by Anne Loxley.
