Jason Dee’s practice uses digital technology to distort the spatial and temporal boundaries of analogue films. This approach works in conjunction with installation techniques that alter cinema’s carefully aligned layout of projector, screen and audience. These two methods combine to highlight the fragmented structure of a hybrid medium that has been in a constant state of flux and renewal for over a century. Rather than simply exposing the material workings of an increasingly obsolete medium, digital technology is used to subtly shift and undermine film’s intricately constructed worlds, creating alternative spaces, rhythms and viewpoints within which old and the new ways of seeing can be merged and reinterpreted.
