DESCRIPTION

Exclusively in honor of the Trojan Parents, Artist Jim Campbell explores the limits of perception at the exhibition Phantasmagoria: Specters of Absence.

Originally trained as a mathematician and electrical engineer, Jim Campbell started to make interactive work in video and with electronic components in the late 1980s. In his work in the exhibition Phantasmagoria: Specters of Absence, Campbell explores the limits of legibility by employing electronic systems in which the image is transported to the more basic elements that conform it, demonstrating that both eye and brain tend to complete the missing information.
