Notes Dirk de Bruyn’s films reflect on the wanderlust that has propelled the artist forward. Dutch-born, but Australian based, de Bruyn creates work that elucidate the fractured experience of the perpetual expatriate. In 16mm he developed a beautiful yet manic collage structure of photographic imagery, rotoscoped drawings and chemical processing-—notable in his films Rote Movie and Understanding Science, made when de Bruyn was living in British Columbia for an extended period in the Nineties. His filmmaking process has been recently translated into digital through both work that directly transcode the manipulated analogue film to digital video (Death of Place) or videos that use a DSLR camera like he once used a Super 8 – pixilating, time-lapsing and montaging diverse imagery into diaristic visual essays. Found Found Found, his most recent video essay, expands his trip through Eastern Europe into a reflection on a visible change in geopolitics, suggesting that, “surveillance, metamorphosed from avant-garde and minimalist cinema, [is] the ‘new norm’, and witness[ing] the new stasis that hypermobility institutes globally and the florid thinking it elicits.”
