Tom Loveday, Zombie Video, 2017, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery December 2017 to February 2018
Zombie Video is a re-animation, after several years, of the aesthetic effects used in the paintings. In giving these effects a second life, I have used layering and other effects to introduce subliminal space, much like seeing the Earth from outside our atmosphere, as one might do from a satellite. I call this completely imaginary effect “radical objectivity.” In this effect human geometry is seen “en masse” as natural within the other “natural” geometry of the coloured animation. For those with a mathematical interest, the geometry of the animation is the movement of an array of geometrically constructed five dimensional “hyper-cubes” with coloured transparent surfaces.
