abradbur – Looking Outwards – 10

Entangled by Camille Utterback (2015)

I was really drawn to this piece because of the magical imagery behind it. The images produced from projections onto three diaphanous screens give both a sense of volume and depth as well as a sort of ghostly feeling at the same time. The idea of two people connecting on other sides of the screen to make a collaborative piece of art is also very poetic. Since the images produced appear on both sides and are affected by both participants, no one has total control.

Camille Utterback has a BA in art from Williams College, and a Masters from The Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She says that her art tries to bring the focus back to the richness of the human body in contrast to a world that is consistently digitized. Her work “explores the aesthetic and experiential possibilities of linking computational systems to human movement and physicality in visually layered ways.”(Bio)
