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
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.
