    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives.

One is asked to be asleep, a squeeze cable release is placed under the pillow. The chance of one’s unconscious body rolling over and triggering the camera results in an exposure. Like Someone Alive expands these boundaries by withdrawing the traditional relationships between the photographer, the object and the camera. (more…)
