Susan Phillips and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

Something that appeals to me still is that sense of commanding attention through the use of space. Susan Phillips exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art really struck a chord with me. She and the work demands...this is how this space should feel for the work to exist in and be part of. It's impossible not to feel reverence, albeit unexplained and unreasoned whilst viewing the work. I liked the way still images are shown along with moving machines, the record players creating the sound heard throughout. they almost become life forms in a space we are entering, as though their world would continue once we have left earshot.
