Harley Morman: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again

Harley Morman’s Let’s Do the Time Warp Again uses lenticular images to consider time and repetition. You may be familiar with these retro ‘animations’ in which two related images are combined and seem to come alive when you change perspective or position. Lenticulars were used on toys, bookmarks, and might have been found on any number of things in a Scholastic book fair. By using Lenticulars in his artworks, Morman presents images that transform as you move around the exhibition space and to show how a change in perspective can completely alter what and how you see.

Lenticular film is Time Warp’s central material metaphor. Morman approaches it as a low craft material and embraces the ghostly glitches, stutters, and transitions of this striated ‘novelty’ medium. The artist uses nostalgic and campy middle school imagery to move between an institutional past and idealized present to challenge viewers to hold multiple angles simultaneously while also challenging concepts of time. Let’s do the time warp again!

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Lindsey Sharman. The RBC New Works Gallery features new artworks by Alberta artists and continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s tradition of supporting and promoting Alberta artists.
