Outside, Inside

Market Gallery, Glasgow
Performance with pinhole camera

“The camera stared out of the gallery, I could not see out. As the work progressed, a photographic sequence of the street outside built up, displaying a record of the time that I had been inside. I could not escape my surroundings, I was the instigator behind what the camera saw. The resulting photographs illustrate a negative, reverse reality as seen by the camera. They deny the movement of passers by, registering them as absent. Only stillness survived the eye of the camera.”  Rebecca Milling
