AutoscopyBoetker-Smith, Daniel; Chester College of Higher Education (2004-05)The Autoscopy exhibition was held at the George Paton Gallery at the University of Melbourne from 18-28 May 2004. It is an ongoing photographic project in which photography itself is put into question. Autoscopy is defined as 'the haalucination or illustion of seeing oneself'; and in this body of work it is the conscious suituating of the self within the image that seeks to illuminate and undermine the traditionally separate roles of photographer, viewer, and subject.
Transactions: Painting and photographyRenshaw, John; Boetker-Smith, Daniel; University of Chester (2006-11-18)This exhibition, held at the Grosvenor Museum in Chester and organised jointly with the University of Chester, examines how abstract painting and photography enter into a fluid relationship of ‘cause and effect’. Painting becomes a catalyst for photography and, equally, photography leads to the creation of painting. These transactions invite the viewer to explore visual experience and the construction of meaning.
