"Dryden Goodwin: Closer"
2002-02-09 until 2002-05-05
Tate Britain
London, , UK United Kingdom

Goodwin works with both still and moving images to investigate the way we interact physically and psychologically with urban spaces. In Closer, Goodwin moves through the city after dark filming solitary individuals seen in brightly-lit buildings. Focusing on them from a distance, he simultaneously touches their skin and traces their profiles with a beam of light from a long distance laser pen.

The use of a zoom lens further confounds the distance between the camera and its subject. This visual ambiguity, combined with a multi-layered soundtrack, manipulates the relationship between the viewer and the viewed, creating an atmosphere which embraces hostility and empathy, intrusion and intimacy.

Dryden Goodwin is fascinated by the urban infrastructure and its effect on the individual. Using a variety of media including video, film, sound, drawing and painting, his work has focused on environments such as airports and hospitals in order to investigate the encounters we have with strangers in the metropolis.
