Camera Exercises

Camera Exercises

Camera Exercises is inspired by the artist's interest in levitation as a fantastical phenomenon. The 16 mm film refers to the early cinematic works of George Méliès as well as the films of performance art from the 1970s. Just as electricity and electromagnetism function as invisible forces, Camera Exercises presents the impossible nature of a floating body upheld by an unseen power that defies the earth's gravitational pull. For Simone Jones, who teaches at the Ontario College of Art and Design, technology functions as both an extension of the human body and as a physical manifestation of thought and desire.
