Hold: Vessel 1 has been designed to encourage interdependence between viewer and vision in order for the work to be fully revealed.

It has been created using a collection of imagery generated via visualising techniques that enable perceptions beyond the limitations of the 'natural' eye.

The work is designed as a vessel with which to hold a changing pool of imagery, derived mainly from Australian scientists and specialist cinematographers.

You hold the image and are held by it; you leave and the vision is released. - Lynette Wallworth

Lynette Wallworth, b. 1961, Sydney, Australia
Lynette Wallworth works in installation, photography and short film. In 2002 Wallworth was an Associate Director of the Adelaide Festival, and a member of the curatorial and working committees for ConVerge, the Adelaide Biennial Exhibition, and Art of Dissent, a national conference on dissent, politics and artists working with communities.

In 2004 she was commissioned by Experimenta to create Invisible by Night, an interactive public projection work that responded to touch; and, by the Ivan Dougherty Gallery, Sydney, to create Still: Waiting 1, a responsive single channel DVD environment that reflects on protocols of first meetings across cultural difference.

Wallworth currently holds an Australia Council New Media Arts Fellowship, allowing her to research and develop new work through residencies in Iran, Massachusetts, and at the Lode Star Observatory, New Mexico.

This work has been supported by the New Media Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
