Works in Hobart Australia

BIO
Anita Bacic is a Hobart-based artist who explores media old and new, with a focus on participatory experiences. Bacic is fascinated with the construction of stories, images and experiences and how we as individuals can actively contribute and interact in these processes. She continues to explore works which encourage curiosity, participation, personal connections and self-reflection that in turn potentially challenge our perceptions and how we see and interpret the world around us.

Bacic has explored older pre-cinema technologies, including camera obscura as installations and street-based mobile experiences for a number of years. Bacic’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and has participated in Parramatta Lanes in Sydney, White Night Melbourne, Nextwave Festival, Electrofringe New Media Arts Festival, ANAT’s Portable Worlds I & II, amberPlatform and Videobrasil.

Latest work by Anita Bacic
Explorations of camera obscura, light and seeing

Anita Bacic's work engages with the human need to network, interact and
communicate with other individuals. Through this Bacic examines how we
learn to see, look and interpret the world around us. Much of her
previous work involved a vigorous examination of the various
technologies that have facilitated communication over the centuries. In
Outside In/Inside Out she frees her work from complex technology in
order to display an image without any editorial control. Each viewer
draws upon his or her own experiences in order to interpret what is
happening; making this encounter similar yet different to others. The
work allows a sense of self and a space for contemplation on the
universality of the world outside as we share experiences despite our
differences.

Outside In


Dates:
Sat Apr 19, 2008 00:00 - Mon Apr 07, 2008

Location:
Turkey

At the beginning of the 21st Century we find ourselves viewing images that have been manipulated in ways that even 10 years ago we would never have thought possible. Instead of allowing a more accurate portrayal of reality these images emphasise the hyper-real, and as a result the viewer can never be sure of the ‘true’ picture.

For centuries we have sought to re-create and contain versions of reality within technological confines and Outside In references this, making connections between traditional and contemporary forms of communication, capture and representation. Inside the camera obscura the path of light is left untampered and unadorned. It provides the viewer with a cinematic experience that captures life on the street outside without the use of modern technology - an unconscious projection with light as the only editor. Using nothing but light, an opening and darkness Outside In creates a story through moving images - in this case our daily lives - invoking the idea of surveillance as entertainment.
