Studies in Stillness: Motion Capture Portraits
11 July 2012 - 14 August 2017
Video still from Animating Stillness by Susan Sloan
Using motion capture data as the core material, Susan Sloan's work explores the portrait through the medium of animation, focusing on the simple gestures and movements of her subjects.
Framed as a single shot and composed around the head and torse of the sitter, the work refers to the traditions and conventions of portraiture, but raises questions concerning the convergence of painting, animation and photography.
The Wall forms part of a new digital programme that questions the way that technology has altered our experience and understanding of photography.
