Landscapes


This series is concerned with the study and re-viewing of my surroundings. The work in this series often begins with the use of photography to document a scene or architectural construction. The images are then broken down to their elements and reconstructed again to form a new view. Each re-composition presents a ‘new landscape’ and addresses ways in which we co-exist in shared, public spaces. The installations aim to reveal new interpretations and often, overlooked aspects of an everyday place.

The Place here (2014-ongoing)


The series The place here  investigates the spatiotemporal distance between where and when the photograph was taken and the moment it is viewed later e.g. in a book or exhibition.

In this body of work I am particular interested in this shift between medium, time and place. By creating these installations, I explore and play with the moment that the photograph has been captured and their representation in new contexts. Often the photographic print is used as material within an installation.

Scene from above (2013/15)



The series Scene from above is presented as a series of small sized prints (approx. A4). The prints visualise photographic landscapes that deal with the formal aspects of photography whilst offering questions related to the viewpoint of the audience.

Found images of idyllic landscapes are broken down into their elements and are re-constructed again using photographic textures as sculptural objects within the photograph. This process enables the viewer to reassess the light, shadow and angles that the original photographs were taken in. The title Scene from above refers to the viewpoint of the audience as well as the chosen perspective of the arranged elements. The work aims to allow the audience to visualise their own landscapes based on the composition.
