July-August 1999,Towner Art Gallery,Eastbourne
Incident is simultaneously a conduit for remote scenes and a catalyst for the Towner's permanent collection of 'incident' paintings and their related texts. Beams of natural light and data transmission are filtered through the gallery's four dark chambers, by 'interface prisms' of convergence. Passing though discrete stages of physical, electronic, logical and textural modes of visual interpretation and analysis, each image collision generates it's own textural description, a strange logical poetry of iterative interpretation, the combination of human and machine, natural and artificial intelligent musing. The interpretation of light emission, the decoding, recoding and encoding of form, culminates in a tabula rosa of phosphorescence and decay, as the space is continually rewritten by the laser translation of neural network analysis.
