TRANQUIL EYES

AMBER CLAUSNER

30 SEPTEMBER - 5 OCTOBER

TRANQUIL EYES (2017) IS THE RESULT OF ONGOING RESEARCH INTO THE VALUE OF A PURELY SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES. WHILST CONSIDERING CONTRADICTIONS OF WILD LIFE CONSERVATION, THIS WORK ALSO COMBINES AN INTEREST IN THE PERCEPTUAL LIMITATIONS OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES WITH THEIR CONTINUAL UPDATES AND OUTDATES. THESE TECHNOLOGICAL FAILURES ARE UTILISED HERE TO RELINQUISH CONTROL BACK TO THE PIXELS ON THE SCREEN IN ORDER TO GIVE FORM TO WHAT LIES BEYOND (AND BEFORE) HUMAN SELF IMPORTANCE.
