can’t get here from there...

can’t get here from there...(installation view), 2014. Photographer: silversalt.
can’t get here from there... is a site specific painted installation that continues my exploration of how an over-saturation of visual information often experienced in contemporary cities can
effect our perception. It is a response to the pervasive influence of screen based technologies,
a media saturated environment and the ease of which imagery can be endlessly manipulated.
Interconnected abstracted elements will colonises the gallery space, wrapping around corners
and traversing the walls. This installation is a spatial investigation into how we see, experience
and represent the world and explores how our mind and body responds to what is often an overwhelming amount of information received by our eyes.

Merryn J Trevethan is a Melbourne based artist. 
She has exhibited in Australia, New York and China.
