“Marcia Jane’s practice is situated within a historical line of critical enquiry into retinal activity traceable back to Goethe’s Theory of Colours (1810). Her Energy Field series re- tools for digital use the formal minimalism, denials and erasures of an invisible performed cinematic avant-garde. Here the relationship between the signifier and the signified are inverted, transposing architectural space as content, projecting Brakhage’s closed-eye vision outside the body and uncoupling analog lens flare and camera focus from its photographic moorings to mime as sonic equivalence.” Dirk de Bruyn
