Time and Resolution: Experiments with High Resolution Imaging

TR Flaxton

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


On obtaining my AHRC Creative Research Fellowship I argued that each artefact created to explore the core research question would effectively be a building block in a developing argument about the effect of increased computational abilities, as witnessed in increased resolution in the generation of electronic motion imaging. Of course I would publish standard academic outputs, peer reviewed articles and papers, but the effect of resolution would be best experienced by exposure to it. Therefore in collaboration with the University of Westminster I created a large-scale exhibition to demonstrate my argument. This exhibition of research work showed the 18 new pieces I had created during the fellowship. There were 7, 20 foot x 10 foot screens, 4 plasma displays, a version of In Other People’s Skins, various prints and a cinemateque which displayed a range of single screen works of mine going back to 1992 (but relevant to the issue of resolution) – in short a synthesis of my hypothesis in a practice based set of works. The accompanying URL demonstrates the place and space of the exhibition before its opening. During the exhibition I convened a series of discussions and research talks which can now be found at this address: http://www.flaxton.btinternet.co.uk/KTWest.htm Also to be found here is my own short introduction to the exhibition and the research issues covered by the work. Many academics came to the opening event - around 1000 people came to the exhibition overall.
