Sub surface is a progression from works based on the Mars mission to retrieve images from the depths of space for visual consideration, to retrieving stimulus from the uncharted oceanic depth.The video is altered footage describing sequential movement of the oceans surface taken from approximately 15metres below sea level from the depths of Bass Straight (Recorded with the aid of scuba diving equipment, boat and an assistant). The drawings are a reinterpretation of the footage that considers a variation of frozen recorded moments.
Simon Finn’s artworks are an exploration of temporal representations and the variable syntheses between artist, environment and technology. The works investigate the boundaries of sight and scientific visualisation as a way of de-centring the human in networks of artistic production.
