KRIS EMMERSON
Kris Emmerson’s work is inspired by modes of simulation within the digital realm. Our
perception and understanding of the world around us is being constantly re-presented
and re-defined by computer generated imagery within the TV and Motion picture
industries. By releasing these 'fantasies' from the limitations of a narrative driven context
they can exist as autonomous entities, offering a momentary sense of wonder; a time and
place outside of the now. ‘Dyathinkeesaurus’, 2010, is a projection modelled from a
crude 3D scan of a child’s toy the dinosaur that marches on relentlessly. Its body is
cracked and torn, the fragile crust of its hollow form at odds with the weight of its step. It
takes its title from the old joke “What do you call a dinosaur with one eye?”
