Support Material for Surrey Urban Screen Proposal 2012.
Victoria is very interested in exploring the use of images available under Creative Commons Licensing and in public archives. A vast quantity of material is being stored on-line for public use, yet the material, remains under viewed because it must be filtered and organized to create meaning. Cosmic Dance is a work that juxtaposes astronomical images with historical and contemporary photographs and video from the district of Surrey to create a thought provoking work.
Ryan and Trevor Oakes have held a lifelong conversation about the nature of visual perception, resulting in a complex new method for drawing reality. In this panel discussion, writer Damien James and photographer Michael Benson join the Oakes brothers to discuss their drawing method, as well as their approach to thinking about light, optics, and vision.
