For the second part of Autonomous Series at Campbell Works, John Tiney will be debuting a new film work that continues a practice that is fictive, compulsive and challenging. Investigating crossovers between artists' film, video and traditional cinema, Tiney explores the notion of illusion and duality through contemporary and historical reference.

This work uses Kubrick's The Shining as a citation. A well known scene of Danny tri-cycling through the hallway of the Overlook Hotel has been re-orchestrated and adapted. As spectators, we are subject to his visions as we experience the similar turns, corners and flashes of vision. Sound and moving image recedes us into to a trancelike state. This double agency begins to envelopes a dialectical notion of being within and beyond an experience.

The conversation will nod it's head towards issues of selection, responsibility, collaboration, free sharing and the workings of peer to peer networks.

This evening event is free - but places maybe limited.
