Last d’Vision was an installation created for the Exhibition EMBODY at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland 1998
The installation is based on Kühne’s experiments with optography in 1878 and the discovery of rhodopsin. The eye and retina are probed by the use of glass and video projections.
‘The story combined with the video images of the eye remind me of the passing of time and summarised a feeling I so often have of linking the outside with the inside. The blinds of a blink, with the surface of time and a vision which could be the last, the first, or the middle, stored in retinal bowls of glass’
