Michele Barker and Anna Munster
Michele Barker and Anna Munster have collaborated for over twenty years. Their most recent work focuses on experimental cinema and responsive media environments as a way of exploring perception, embodiment and movement. Their work has been included in Vidarte, the Mexican Biennale of Video Art; MOCA, Taipei; The Photographer’s Gallery, London; FILE Festival, Sao Paolo; Museum of Art, Seoul; and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Following a residency at Eyebeam in New York, Barker and Munster developed the award winning multi-channel work Struck, which was exhibited in Australia, the US, China and Taiwan. Recent works include évasion (UTS Gallery, Sydney, 2014), an 8-channel responsive installation working across dance, performance and the moving image; and the multi-channel interactive work HokusPokus (Watermans Gallery London, 2012), which explores the relations between perception, magic and early moving image technologies. This work was chosen to represent Australasia as part of the International Festival of Digital Art and the Cultural Olympiad in London (2012).
