Since I began this artwork the concept of hauntology which was new to me has heavily influence my creative output – I read first about it in Stephen Prince’s book ‘A Year In The Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields: Journeys in Otherly Pastoralism, the Further Reaches of Folk and the Parallel Worlds’ and he told me was informed of Hauntology from the writer Mark Fisher’s whose books I am consuming – firstly ‘Ghosts of my Life : Writings on Depression, Hauntology and Lost Futures’ & now ‘K-Punk’. Clearly all authors written routes are traced back to its origin from Derrida.
Hauntology – (a portmanteau of haunting and ontology) is a concept coined by philosopher Jacques Derrida in his 1993 book Spectres of Marx. The term refers to the situation of temporal, historical, and ontological disjunction in which the apparent presence of being is replaced by a deferred non-origin, represented by “the figure of the ghost as that which is neither present, nor absent, neither dead nor alive.”
If you view my work in augmented reality I would like you to keep this in mind
‘Apparitions’ a new artwork by Luciana Haill
This is a self-selecting, inspirational, immersive art experience in three scenes. I have designed and made a smart phone app that transcends purely informational use, its presence is anchored by 3 surreal soundtracks, each unravelling & travelling through time – ‘bringing back the bygone‘ from 1864-1973
Apparitions launches during coastal currents and from them on continues with legacy into 2019. Artist Luciana Haill, a resident of St Leonards will reveal the research and importantly show you how you can access the artwork at various local events.
