Burn Elizabeth Gosling

16 April – 9 May 2015

..distraction, destruction, preservation...

Burn┬áre-invents the story of John Cura, a man who took photographs of television transmissions in the 50s and 60s. These ‘telesnaps’ represent a lost history in British broadcasting. Elizabeth Gossling imagines Cura mutate into Cura Obscura, a human camera evolving under the pressure and impossibility of capturing every moment on multiplying channels and screens as the speed and intensity of images accelerates.
