Exhibitions on Screen: David Carson's What Lies Beneath
“At heart Carson is a landscape painter, keen to map out terrain in new and exciting ways. He immerses himself not only in the topography of a selected area, but more importantly in the history of the place”. Dr. Phil Mouldycliff
David Carson’s work explores temporal relationships in sound and vision.
This current work What Lies Beneath is a response to walking in the Karri forest surrounding the Donnelly River Village as part of the Donnelly Verandah Residency program. The video takes the viewer on a slow journey to the heart of the image - like Alice in Through The Looking Glass, finding light at the end of the tunnel (Rabbit Hole).
Here Carson uses reframing techniques applied to 360º video sequences of the Donnelly River Village environment exploring the ‘rabbit hole’ effect created from spherical video capture. This is a part of an ongoing fascination with the creative possibilities of 360º digital image and video recording.
What Lies Beneath - first shown at the Earlywork Gallery, South Fremantle 6-13 June 2022. See: tinyurl.com/carsondonnelly
