Roman Signer

Transmissions from the River, 2011

River Bogie, Not on public display

Wooden structure


Roman fixed a camera on to a wooden cross-like structure which was strung from the local bridge and floated out into the river. The camera, recording the movements of the river, transmitted the images back into the Empty Shop, Bogie Street.

This work was developed from an early memory of the artist, who lived next to a river as a boy. Poetically it seems fitting that the structure came apart shortly after the transmission. The remnants of the work now reside in the river and/or further waters, rather much like a memory it exists in a particular moment of time.
