Presented on a giant monolithic screen hovering in the forecourt of Hyde Park Barracks, Boundary Conditions is an ambitious new video work from artist Daniel Crooks that seamlessly weaves together an alternate world of disparate spaces and non-linear time.

Taking the historic sites of Sydney Living Museums as its departure point, the video employs precision robotic motion control and sophisticated post-production techniques to create a scrolling tapestry of time and space. Juxtaposing the past and the present, the virtual and the real, the video also speaks to the precarious liminality of our contemporary moment. The world is in a state of ambiguity and disorientation and the work, at once fragmented and unstable, beguiling and beautiful, invites viewers to reconsider their internal models of space and time and in turn the site of the Barracks itself.

Join us for a series of programs that delve into the time-spliced, fragmented world of Boundary Conditions artist Daniel Crooks. Experience the magic of electronic sound creation in hands-on workshops, listen to captivating talks and go on a visual and sonic journey through experimental music and sound art at our After Dark event.

Boundary Conditions is the third artwork created for Sydney Living Museums’ annual art commission.
