  Sight/Seeing, video still, 2005


Chris Oakley’s “Sight/Seeing" video installation explores the commodification of the wild as typified in the modern safari (i.e. “seeing” through a camcorder viewfinder, through the windscreen of a bus). Chris Oakley's work is concerned with mediated experiences in its many forms, including mainstream media, mass communications, amateur photography and augmented reality. Chris lives and works in the UK and has received widespread recognition in Europe. He has shown alongside Tony Ourlser, Pipilotti Rist and Josef Robakowski.
