2011 computer game modification
A series of new works that subtly place the viewer in a somewhat neurotic state of calm. Gibson/Martelli refine motion within the manipulated moving image to alter our perceptions, building on the idea that movement can solicit sensory awareness. Faith is a modificaton of the ‘Mirrors Edge’ computer game, stripping away all the models to leave an empty sky. Using ingame physics, the dislocated character endlessly falls. The 2011 solo exhibition title ‘Messenger’ comes from the works eponymous characters role in the game.
