Vron Harris’ practice is interested in the construction of film, the representation of time and the materiality of different media. There’s an interest in the possibility of using still images to create a sense of movement and moving images to create a sense of stillness.
This sense of a still image: of a moment that 'was now’ but has since past, and the possibility of the moving image to re-animate these stills into the appearance of life, allows an exploration of both the materiality and the illusion of the moving image and how these oppositions and tensions might relate and interact with one another.
Vron's work has been exhibited in galleries and online and published in both books and DVDs.
