Simon Ford and Colin Lloyd: The Tracker Chronicles

Gallery II,  01 October to 28 October

The Tracker Chronicles explores the complex connections between looking, listening and reading, in different times and spaces. Who is looking, what for and why?

The artists, Simon Ford and Colin Lloyd, are not predicting answers but hopefully provoking thought through poetic digital - image - object interplay.

Using surveillance technology, data collection, digital print and re-imagined objects, The Tracker Chronicles plays with an array of information gathering devices, exploring their possible meanings and applications. Live camera feeds and data streams are overlapped and interfered with, movement is mapped across a public atrium space occupied by a CCTV tower and a time travelling chandelier. Meanwhile back in the gallery, birds sing, stocks rise and fall, sun spots flare, people watch and are watched and the images and data flow.

A lot of complex ideas to unpick, but worth interrogation
