Biography

David Stephenson studied at the University of Colorado and then the University of New Mexico, completing an MFA in photography in 1982. He was appointed to the University of Tasmania in 1982, and headed the photography program between 1984 and 2013. His photographs have been exhibited widely, including solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (1993), the National Gallery of Victoria (1998), and the Cleveland Museum of Art (2001). His work is represented in many private and public collections both in Australia and overseas including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Research Themes

A fascination for the aesthetics of the sublime has led David Stephenson to travel and photograph extensively around the world, with journeys to both the Arctic and the Antarctic. While the contested human value systems associated with wilderness and natural environment have constituted the background for much of his work, over the past ten years he has also been involved in an investigation of the architecture of transcendence, and its representation through both traditional photography and temporal digital media. David's monograph on this subject, Visions of Heaven: The Dome in European Architecture, was published in 2005 by Princeton Architectural Press, New York.

Projects

The Derwent project: immersive digital media visualisations for the representational problems of complex and remote environments (2014 - 2016)$205,000
Description
The Derwent Project will create new ways to visualise the complex natural and cultural history of Tasmanias Derwent River system. This vast and often inaccessible environment includes Aboriginal and colonial heritage alongside ten hydroelectric developments. Its multiple layers of space and time present new opportunities to synthesise artistic and scientific paradigms of representation by drawing on geography, history, and archaeology. The outcome will be innovative forms of immersive time-based digital imaging that evocatively reveal hidden layers of environmental information to both specialist and general audiences.
