Motion.Time.Space

These are 2 pieces of work I intend to show in the forthcoming MA group show:

Light-Scratch experiment

This has been an idea I’ve wanted to try for a while, I’ve just needed the right light! The image is actually light reflecting off a piece of vinyl spinning on my turntable. The sound you hear is from that record, it is a sine tone.

Bleed

I made this piece using 25 layers of the same train journey between Wembley Park & Finchley Road (shot out of the window). Each time I added a new layer I delayed it one frame to the previous one and reduced its opacity slighty. So each 1/25 second has a 1 second trace which gradually disappears. The music is derived from sound recordings made on various train journeys around London and came to be through a series of live improvisations with the material.

Man-made & Natural forms

February 6, 2008 at 2:32 pm (MADA UNIT 1)

These are a selection of photographs I took on 2 separate trips; one south from Trafalgar Square towards Horse Guard Street, the other around Vauxhall Bridge. I used my digital camera for this

It felt fantastic to go out shooting again! The light was really wonderful those days, creating long, majestic silhouettes. With the photographs taken on Horse Guard Street, it seemed to me that nature was trying to reclaim the space, it’s shadow presence intruding on the urban forms.

South Bank & Golden Jubilee Bridge

Experiments with my new film camera (courtesy of my father – cheers!)

The colours are so rich and once scanned the quality and definition of a photo is more than I’ll ever need to work with. I have much to learn about film cameras, but I’m getting to grips with it. With each trip I will learn more.
