Slowness: Artist Talk with Brian McClave (Site Eye)
15th February 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm£5
We present a special Artist Talk with Brian McClave from Site-Eye, whose digital works are part of the Slowness exhibition on at DC1 Cafe & Gallery.
Site-Eye evolved out of the fine art video and photography practice of Brian McClave, coupled with the computer programming background of his brother Gareth McClave. The company has grown into the UK’s busiest commercial time-lapse filming company.
Brian will discuss the works in the exhibition and how they were made, including Flicker + Pulse (2016, 60 mins) a striking and poignant portrayal of time passing in a beautiful English walled garden near Lewes, featured last year on BBC4. Using real-time and time-lapse footage, the film explores the relationship between the seasons and the plants and people who work within the walls of the garden.
Slowness presents approximately 18 of the 24 photographs from the Overshadowed project. Overshadowed was created during the last solar eclipse in the United States and involved 18 volunteer photographers making digital slow scan photographs in each of the states where the eclipse passed.
Site-Eye documents many of the landmark buildings and engineering projects being built throughout the UK and overseas and produces extreme high-speed footage for television and media companies, as well as developing experimental art projects. Many of these projects have pioneered new, experimental filming and photography techniques, and often produce imagery that offers a completely new way of looking at a particular subject.
