Fifty Sisters – digital exhibition at Caulfield Library

Fifty Sisters by Jon McCormack at the Caulfield Library, Monash University

Following on from a previous exhibition at the Hargrave-Andrew Library (Monash University, Clayton) in 2015, a software-based version of Fifty Sisters is showing at the newly refurbished Caulfield Library, Monash University, Caulfield (map). In this version of the work, the computer acts as editor, selecting and framing several closeup shots of each sister, before finally displaying the full image. A new image is presented every 10 minutes or so. The work runs on the library’s new video wall, which has 4k resolution and reveals significantly more detail in the images than the version exhibited at the Hargrave-Andrew Library in 2015.

Some images from the exhibition.
