Presenting a newly commissioned work by Daniel Crooks for the Darebin Art Collection. This single channel video work is an investigation of the artist’s local neighbourhood – High Street, Preston – while further developing his renowned pixel-splicing aesthetic. Continuing Crooks’ fascination with time as a physical material the commission also explores how ideas of documentary and the everyday intersect with our contemporary experience of Google street view, blanket surveillance and computational imaging.
