Souvenir is an exhibition that critically and humorously explores notions of Australiana. Presented are re-worked found images, painting, video, sculptural objects and printed digital video abstractions.
‘Media theorist Paul Virilio believes that each new technological innovation brings the potential for its corresponding accidents. As the artist, I seek to draw parallels between digital accidents and specific ones in Australian history.'
The abstractions start out as video recordings made whilst visiting particular theme and National parks. For example Abstract Convicts, Flogged was made by digitally processing video footage shot at the now closed theme park “Old Sydney Town”. The source recording is of a re-enacted convict flogging.
For the show at Horus & Deloris, Wade is developing custom built software to explore digital accidents in relation to specific and personally experienced accidents in Australian history.
