MOSAIC by Wesley Dowling is a reactive web-based site-responsive work that was developed during the Centre for Projection Art Residency Program. Digital technologies, such as network infrastructure and mobile devices, have brought about redefinitions of public space which have now become merged virtual and physical spheres. The work acknowledges this new condition of public space by fusing the virtual windows of the web browser to the physical architecture of the Collingwood Yards building through projection.
Wesley Dowling is a Melbourne-based emerging queer artist whose work encompasses lens based and interactive digital media. He creates works that investigates how photography has outgrown its role as a purely representational agent due to its merging with digital media and computing. He uses queer theory to examine these conditions by creating works that subvert the underlying architecture of the digital image, and to problematize the connection between images and objects. Wesley is currently a resident artist at Centre for Projection Art.
