To See is To Change

with Bombay Tilts Down (2022) and A Photogenic Line, (2019) as part of Photo 24, Melbourne.
In this pair of large-scale works, CAMP explore two sides of their practice; one that produces experimental film and video, often with unusual equipment and angles of participation, and another that creates and animates archives of moving images, documents and photography.

The two works are united by their re-spatialisation of places and history and by becoming temporal structures of what could be or could have been. Both suggest, in a reworked cinematic tradition, that seeing is not passive and can reassemble concrete realities.

Bombay Tilts Down (2022, 13 mins, 6+1 screens) was filmed with a 4K CCTV camera from a single point on a 36-floor building in central Mumbai, while being watched by people in the city below.

A Photogenic Line, (2017, cutout photographic montage) assembles photographs from the archive of The Hindu, a left-leaning Indian national newspaper, in a sequence where “one photograph calls the next'', via a series of rules. In this allusion to a filmic edit, we walk through small and big historical events with their original captions, now inside a non-narrative, unstable and eerie political assemblage.
