There is still very much a place for the qualities and flaws of traditional
techniques in a microchip age that sees digital technology creating its
own aesthetics, which are becoming the normality in popular culture. I
investigating this notion through my film and photographic work in playing
with the organic and physical properties of film itself, and presenting
contrasting conceptual themes; including: the ancient and modern, organic
and man-made, space and confinement, night and day, speed and tranquillity...
rewinding an entire roll of film, then re-shooting onto it, I was able
to roughly compose various elements with a strong random element of chance.
When the film is processed it seems as if compositional elements have
put in a bag, shaken up and scattered to create unexpected and uncontrolled
results. This also seems to me the way the brain can throw up random layers
as one is drifting into a dream state - a halfway, "twilight"
conveys the subconscious mind.
