Installation: Chris Gallagher Around Here

Chris Gallagher is an artist and film maker, whose background includes a decades long position as an Associate Professor of film at UBC. Gallagher creates vibrant photographic images from controlled time-based events, utilizing a self-developed technique termed the radial pan which creates a centrifuge-like effect. This work explores the dynamics of temporal media expressed in the static structure of the photographic image, questioning the underlying concepts of both film and photography.
