Statement:
Bob Georgeson has remained committed to the dada protest and surrealist path since meeting the Czech born Australian surrealist Dusan Marek in Adelaide in 1970. Originally slicing through the eyeball of the intersection of reality and desire with a scalpel in a series of photomontages based on the symbiotic relationship between eroticism and religion, he has more recently turned to the subject of societal collapse and disorder, and the impact of new technologies on human interactions.

Tired of exhibiting in the white cube he turned to video art in 2012 and began working on collaborative online projects in the Creative Commons. He has since published over 100 experimental films and continues to work with musicians, artists and performers around the world from his home in a remote corner of South Eastern Australia.
