Alberta College of Art and Design
Anna Semenoff studies sculpture at the Alberta College of Art and Design; her material practice is primarily comprised of video and light based installation. Her work is motivated behind concepts derived from the field of Phenomenology – a theoretical framework pertaining to structures and mechanics of experience, recognizing systems of being. Video projection is employed as a medium, curated to function in tandem with its corporeal surroundings. Visual imagery is implemented as a vehicle of representation – an apparatus; the internal mechanism occupied within a larger framework, as a fabricated template, an offer to consider ways of seeing. The art becomes a secondary source: a lense of responsibility placed in the hands of the spectator, prompting awareness to expose the pre-existing climate. Simultaneously manipulating, and depending on mimicry, the arranged networks of isolated engagements will echo as the product of the individual.
