Camera Recording its Own Condition (7 Apertures, 10 Speeds, 2 Mirrors), 1971
70 photographs, black and white, on card on Perspex
This series consists of photos of Hilliard’s own camera, taken using mirrors and different combinations of aperture and shutter speed. Hilliard’s fingers can be seen operating the camera. Photography is both the medium and the subject of the work, giving not a picture of ‘reality’, but different versions of reality.

Sonia Delaunay was a Jewish-French artist who, with her husband Robert Delaunay and others, co-founded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colors and geometric shapes. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design. She was the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Louvre in 1964, and in 1975 was named an officer of the French Legion of Honor.
Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the integration of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing.
