A video I created as part of a series by the Brazilian collective Galeria Experiência, that I was part of for the past two years. This is a special edition for the series as it was made with my father, George Cameron. Captured via Skype, I explored the artistic possibilities of modern technology. The experience was one that was intimate, despite the distance of 14,328.4 km that exists between Brazil and Australia.
“In the project ‘Um, Dois, Três e Já’ they (Galeria Experiência) propose that respondents recall passages of childhood, creating an accurate strategy for them to step into a private world, emotional and sometimes conflicting. Those interviewed, whilst in the channel of childhood memory, are taken by a genuine emotion that makes the articulation of speech a direct bridge to subjectivity. A favorable atmosphere is created for the camera to lose it’s objectivity and generate images in which the boundary between the static of photography and the motion of video are diffuse and revealing. The character and their environment inhabit a time that seems suspended. The time of memory.” -Eder Chiodetto (Brasilian Curator)
