Screen Shots (Airlock)

Screen Shots, 2011, from the series Mystical Realisms; Modest Gestures, consists of nine screens in a grid pattern showing films shot with a high definition scientific camera. Paint-filled balloons in a variety of colours are popped in extreme slow motion in front of contrasting background colours. Carr describes this visually luscious work as “a painting that moves” in which the viewer sees the paint exploding and trickling from the punctured balloons after being popped with a pin.
