Distort Displace

Daniel Roberts

Daniel Roberts’ Distort Displace focuses on the idea that dreams are a snapshot into the inner working of the mind and the unconscious. Using a combination of 3D motion capture, scanning technology, and video interviews of people talking about their dreams, the digital animation and prints presented in this exhibition explore how subtle fluctuations in speech and movement can indicate what lies beneath the public face.
