Artist Talk: Bonnie Camplin

For Liverpool Biennial 2014, Bonnie Camplin created a new immersive work: The DSV. According to the artist, the DSV is a magnification technology for the enhanced observation of small objects. It incorporates an ultra-specific protocol. A serious commitment to this protocol is necessary for a successful application of the technology.
