Purrumbete Verandah, 2008

Seth Keen

Abstract


In describing his 2008 digital video installation, a continuous 3 minute five second loop, Seth Keen introduces a contemporary engagement with the historic landscape of rural Victoria witnessed by Von Guérard in his paintings of the 1850s. Bringing together a background in documentary practice and graphic design, Seth is interested, as a media artist, in using digital technologies to explore forms of environmental portraiture that document relationships between people and place. In this video work, he revisits the location and landscape painting, From the verandah of Purrumbete, 18582 by Eugene Von Guérard.
