In the moment of eye contact we feel ourselves seeing as well as being seen. The sense of ‘self’ and ‘other’ is compounded into an electric transmission. When we meet eye-to-eye vision becomes touch. The cold voyeuristic distance of the sight collapses into a feedback loop of two beings searching and sensing each other.
David is the first Australian to have completed the highly esteemed French contemporary art institute Le Fresnoy National Studio. He has exhibited internationally in France, Germany, Bugalria, Poland and Holland and in 2011 undertook a residency in the Antarctic.
