'The Overview Effect' is a limited edition risograph catalogue printed as a companion to the 2016 exhibition of the same title. Featuring work by artists Henrietta Armstrong, Miranda Boulton, Fiona Grady, Hayley Harrison and Katya Kvasova.
It borrows its title The Overview Effect from a term used by Astronauts; described as a cognitive shift experienced when viewing the planets vulnerability and beauty from afar. An altered perspective is the emphasis for each of the artists, this is evident in their method of making the work, or in the work itself, acting as a lens of distortion.
The publication includes an essay by Arts Writer Anna McNay.
