Untitled by Byron Perry and Antony Hamilton
Untitled is all about rhythmic, hyper-edited facial close-ups.
In front of the two big screens, you'll find small electronic piano keyboards which trigger the footage. Then you're in the driver's seat, recutting and remoulding the footage into the absurdly entertaining selfies you never knew you needed.
This project has been commissioned by Carriageworks and assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
You can find this work in The Cube on the Galleries level.
