William Mansfield is a Sydney based new media artist, specialising in video and sculptural installation. He graduated from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW with 1st Class Honours in 2007 and has exhibited widely in group shows throughout Australia and abroad. Mansfield’s practice fuses ideas of schlock horror and glitch art with childhood nostalgia. He utilises re-appropriated pre-cinematic device and dioramas with a do-it-yourself amusement park aesthetic, to weave together open-ended narratives, within the work. Mansfield also aims to reveal the mechanisms behind cinematic spectacles and illusions by remixing and manipulating cultural memory.
