Peter Campus: Opticks

by Catherine Elwes

Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ), 2012, v. 1, no. 1, pp. 107-110

A review of an interactive video installation by Peter Campus, Stasis. Viewers images are revealed to them as ghostly and dark, decelerating any action that the viewer makes to an unsettling effect. The viewer is abstracted through the doubling and distortion of their image.

The author acknowledges the history of Campus's 40-year career in video art and connects this and past works to self-image in relation to society.
