Exhibition Review (excerpt)

The Importance of Being Aware by Luke Strevens

Bridget Walker’s videos all entitled Eclipse Bureau, 2013 a series of three each portraying a dark prophecy of dystopic visions – a future plagued by uber capitalist hyper consumption of total industrial militarisation, an existentially taxing catastrophic world doomed by viruses and maddening maladies, a dead planet of disconnected mnindless drones – robotic humanoids.  As I watched this engaging work I thought to myself, either by masterful brilliance or just delicious fluke, the interior of one of the buildings in the central video looked astoundingly like the very one I was standing in.
