Still Gold Rushing

Still Gold Rushing (2017) is a work by May Heek.

How can embodied perception, cybernetics and interactivity affect the visual language of an image scroll? Still Gold Rushing (2017) is a live stream of a series of images and samples of valuable-looking materials. The sliding camera movement presents the relationship between the recorded image, the device and the projected image. This loop creates an intuitive interaction between the reflective input materials and the projection, which exposes the physical position of the viewer and the social implications of technology. The framing and changing perspectives suggest ideas around individualism, isolation and prejudice.

The installation Still Gold Rushing looks at abstraction as a potential tool for questioning and widening the meaning of knowledge. How do we define the boundary between knowing and un-knowing? By scrutinizing the purpose of representation, the work approaches new ways of seeing and detachment of connotation that could potentially become systems for (non-)physical communication and reflexivity.
