The press release talks about the thrill of being seen and performing, gaining an audience versus the fear of total transparency. Melbourne-based Bradley has made a new series of digital portraits that “combines the clichés of 20th century abstraction with WWII techniques for naval camouflage” hiding the subjects that have been imaged on live video app. Periscope, a smart phone software that lets you see the world through other peoples eyes, as they experience it.
In an age where the question around privacy and its privilege is being both desired and contested, for this Bradley will leave the surfaces unfixed and available to manipulate in a parallel editing programme by the viewer in this particular series for Unvalley Valley, which, as a title rhymes somehow with the wave-y painting process Bradley often works with.
