A Visibility Matrix

Ross GIBSON (Other)

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


A Visibility Matrix manifests as a network of screens and spatial gestures, in which we observe images being duplicated, mirrored and displaced. These gestures unfold over days and months of exhibition, pursuing both repetition and re-assembly. This system speculates on the possibilities of video not as passive image but as an active signal, and the gallery as a site of condensation; a shared space and a space of reflection. The extended-duration sequences that surface through the artwork are assembled from video material aggregated from a network of collaborators including: Daniel & Marie Law Adams Rosa Aiello Matt Bakkom Rosa Barba Eric Baudelaire Beat Detectives John Beattie Ericka Beckman Maeve Brennan Andreas Bunte Duncan Campbell Jonas Dahlberg Matija Debeljuh Dennis Del Favero Willie Doherty Jeanette Doyle Moritz Fehr Diego Ferrari Darko Fritz Rene Gabri & Ayreen Anastas Mariam Ghani & Chitra Ganesh Ross Gibson Judith Goddard Igor Grubic Jennie Guy Louis Haugh Kathy High Klara Hobza Jere Ikongio & Katja Kellerer Ivan Marusic Klif John Lalor Charles Lim Jeanne Liotta Lovid Hrvoje Mabic Nicholas Mangan Fiona Marron Ed Mattiuzzi Peter Maybury Ronan McCrea Conor McGarrigle Toni Mestrovic Abinadi Meza Suzanne Mooney Mosireen Nadija Mustapic Rosalind Nashisibi Arnont Nongyao Tadhg O'Sullivan Dietmar Offenhuber Matt Parker Jack Phelan Piyarat Piyapongwiwat Jason Quinlan Eugenia Raskopoulos Lucy Raven Ben Rivers Karl Ingar Røys Adam Sekuler Craig Smith Michael Bell Smith Sean Snyder Stephanie Spray Danae Stratou Daniel Von Sturmer Jose Carlos Teixeira Leslie Thornton Gabriele Trapani Sara Velas Clemens von Wedemeyer Grace Weir Jeremy Welsh Krzysztof Wodiczko Tintin Wulia This material was gathered, filtered and annotated working with editorial collaborators Matthew Bakkom, Victoria Brooks, Rhea Dall, Moritz Fehr, Igor Grubic, Dan Kidner, Nikos Papastergiadis and Oraib Toukan, and assembled with support from Louis Haugh and Fiona Marron.
