LAB 7.2: 360 Degree Video: a Guided Tour of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Chris GillespieSeptember 20, 2007 - September 20, 2007
Victoria-based artist Chris Gillespie undertakes an anthropological examination of the Art Gallery through a multidirectional video tour. Jon Blair, the Gallery’s Senior Security Guard, provides the narration for Gillespie’s film. The work, presented in the Lab as a four part projection, builds on connections to historic documentary films that focus on the everyday event to capture an understanding of reality. Gillespie uses all aspects of the site as a subject: It is in the gaps or spaces that the viewer has the ability to engage with the work and it is here that discovery seems possible.
