Audrey and Emmett from Loss in a simulated environment
Jacqueline Felstead engages with 3D technology (photogrammetry) to map the empathetic rather than calculate the quantifiable. In practice this involves attempting to replicate near-irreproducible states, such as rendering in a 3D model an hour of someone’s time, or documenting a bird’s-eye view while on the ground. Audrey and Emmett is unusual in that it is a 3D model made from hundreds of photographs taken over an extended period of time, so that in this model features become prominent by being constant. Here the nearness offered by a technology that can see around corners juts up against the closeness over time between two figures.
Jacqueline Felstead is winner of the 2017 Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship. She has been awarded an Asialink Residency to Objectif’s, Singapore with the support of the Australia Council and a studio residency to Banff Centre, Canada. She holds an MFA (Monash), B.A. (Hons) in Media Art (RMIT) and Social Science and is completing a PhD at Victorian College of the Arts. Recent solo exhibitions include All Angles Forever (St Heliers, Abbotsford Convent); I am here (West Space); Gatwick Private Hotel (VAC); Everything (Objectifs, Singapore); Small Worlds (Curator, Substation, Singapore); Because I Know You… (Curator, Counihan Gallery) and group shows include Dots and Loops (Evans Contemporary, Toronto).
