About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Scott Massey graduated from the photography program at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design. Massey's work typically explores the confluence of art and science whereby he accentuates and amplifies natural phenomena, often heightened through artificial means or via slight manipulations, based on research into areas of quantum physics, cosmology, astronomy, and other scientific disciplines. Light as a medium and image-making apparatus are fundamental aspects of his practice. Massey currently lives and works out of Bowen Island BC.

Movement without Moving

Presented in collaboration with Mois Multi, Scott Massey exploits the materials and apparatus of photography to create a new image vocabulary.

Movement without Moving is a group of photographs, video works, and sculptures exploring invisible movement and the opposition between the mobile and immobile. By finding new ways to use materials, optical instruments, and devices to create photographic images, Scott Massey creates a space for a kind of poetic contingency giving rise to unexpected phenomena that echo those observed in nature and in space. The artist uses mechanical games and ingenious processes to create images where mobility, often illusory or intangible, takes material form. Evoking the imperceptible movement of the cosmos and the transformation of celestial bodies, the selected works place visitors face-to-face with the infinite universe, triggering a sense of vertigo as they confront such immensity.

Scott Massey whishes to thank the British Columbia Arts Council.

This exhibition is part of the Inventing Risk programming, which invites us to reconsider the way we make art and the way we think the image.
