Daniel Boyd 'VIDEO WORKS' commission for Carriageworks

11 January 2020

Daniel Boyd's installation has been unveiled at Carriageworks for their 2020 Summer Commissions Program.

​Boyd's VIDEO WORKS is a site-specific reconfiguration of three major video installations produced by the artist between 2012-18. VIDEO WORKS proposes an immersive journey through time and space, an experience that simultaneously evokes the molecular properties of matter and the expansiveness of the universe. The artist’s signature motif of the circular lens is used to fragment and disrupt Eurocentric perspectives of history, revealing that knowledge is both lost and found through information shared and obstructed.
