Event Overview

Presented on a 9m x 7m LED screen hovering in the forecourt of Hyde Park Barracks, Boundary Conditions is an ambitious new video work from artist Daniel Crooks that seamlessly weaves together an alternate world of disparate spaces and non-linear time.  Taking the historic sites of Sydney Living Museums as its departure point, the video employs precision robotic motion control and sophisticated post-production techniques to create a scrolling tapestry of time and space. Juxtaposing the past and the present, the virtual and the real, the video also speaks to the precarious liminality of our contemporary moment. The world is in a state of ambiguity and disorientation and the work, at once fragmented and unstable, beguiling and beautiful, invites viewers to reconsider their internal models of space and time and in turn the site of the Barracks itself.

Boundary Conditions is supported by the NSW Government and is the third artwork created for Sydney Living Museums’ annual art commission.

About the artist

Daniel Crooks works predominantly in video, photography and sculpture. He is best known for his digital video and photographic works that capture and alter time and motion. Crooks manipulates digital imagery and footage as though it were a physical material. He breaks time down, frame by frame. The resulting works expand our sense of temporality by manipulating digital ​‘time slices’ that are normally imperceptible to the human eye.
