Street X-Rays is built from space and time. Drawing on a collection of crime scene photographs from the 1950s, it shows the past and the present living and moving in each other in much the same way that we live and move in our taken-for-granted habitats.
The screens are arranged in a way that's inspired by the magnificent Zen garden of Ryoan-Ji in Kyoto. The viewer is drawn on to a new vantage point, lured into exploring new conjunctions, aware that the entire scene can never be comprehended from one privileged perspective.
Street X-Rays is part of a suite of several works interpreting crime scene photographs. This suite is entitled Life After Wartime and has been produced during the past seven years in a collaboration between Gibson and Kate Richards, working with Aaron Seymour, Greg White and Chris Abrahams.
