Searching for Bruce Willis | Julie Tremble | September 16 to November 26, 2016

Nourished by cinema, literature, and philosophy, Julie Tremble’s practice considers the role that narrative plays in our experience of the world. Through the media of video and digital animation, Tremble constructs experimental fiction and contemplative animation loops that explore how emotion, nature, mental state, and social interaction are interpreted and understood through processes of narrative construction
 
In recent years, Tremble has focused on natural phenomena, and in particular, the explosion, exploring how it might act as a pivotal point of transformation and a great concentration of potentialities. As a continuous movement, unstable form, and element of radical change, Tremble has utilized the explosion as a means to examine different forms of narrative. Through research centered on meteorites, black holes, and stellar explosions, she developed a body of work that addresses the field of astronomical representation and how the imagery and vocabulary of natural science and the mental attitudes and social values that are reflected in these sites of research are disseminated. Her research on natural disasters considers the roles they play in collective imagery as illustrated by their representation in oral tradition, cinema, and documentary films.
