Alice Highet

I use my smartphone to record moments (shadows, reflections), where time seems to slow down. Questioning pervasive, fast, technological interaction and inviting a more engaged experience, I am asking how perception and our experience of time is altered through technology use.

I work across a broad range of media including moving images, projection, sculpture, sound and immersive installations. My work is influenced by early optical toys and the origins of cinema (media archology). By playing with scale to create an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ effect and using audio-visual, multi-sensory methods, I alter the sense of space and time, inviting people to pay attention through their bodies. Evoking meditation or daydream states, my art creates conditions which blur boundaries between psychological, interior and physical, exterior worlds.
