Dear Theo,

As it says on the sign at the entry to the gallery, we apply the same conditions no matter what is showing in the gallery or any particular view of it – no photography or recording of any sort is allowed. We don’t have an issue with criticism, however out of respect for the work, the artist and our agreement with him, this was a polite request to respect the conditions of your free entry to the gallery.

Many thanks,

Hello Chris,


thank you for your faint praise.


I believe the work is covered by fair dealing provisions of copyright for the purpose of criticism possibly even parody.


The parts used in my critical piece are not substantial and any appearance that they are is due to the repeditive nature of the content in the current exhibition.


More importantly you seem to miss a crucial element of the “Parallel Forces”. It is an eight screen exhibit in a specific room. It is purposely not a piece of distributed video. (That is actually one one my criticisms.) Therefore my extracts are even less substantial in the totality of the exhibited work.


I look forward to the space being used for some interesting work in the future.

Hi Theo


Thanks for your message regarding Shaun Gladwell: Stereo Sequences. We appreciate that any form of art evokes a personal and subjective response from the audience and we would be the first to say that every individual is entitled to their respective opinions. It is always good to hear how our visitors respond to our programming so thanks for taking the time to send us your thoughts. I would like to point out though that filming or photography of artworks within our gallery spaces is not allowed and reproducing the artists work online via You Tube breaches copyright. As such, we would appreciate if you would remove the video at your earliest convenience.

Comments on “Parallel Forces”

This work is a comment on a video installation by Shaun Gladwell at ACMI in Melbourne.

I used Final Cut Pro X for the video editing and I am finding it very easy to edit and assemble video. However there are a few areas which are not intuitive such as adding transitions to audio clips for example which require more training materials not less. The audio first needs to be detached from the video then made into a new story line and then a transition can be edited. I think this is because of the trackless nature of FCP X that these extra steps are required. The information was contained in the Larry Jordan training files.
