Circa 1948

Currently at the Fruitmarket Gallery here in Edinburgh, for another two weeks, is a show of various media by Canadian artist Stan Douglas, including huge blow-ups of virtual landscapes from his interactive history Circa 1948. (See one of them in bigger-than-any-monitor size at the Fruitmarket site.) A lot of his work plays with the era - a room in the exhibition is filled with noirish portraits taken fifty years after they claim to be. But stepping into them is rather... interesting.
