‘Structure in Move’, a project supported by a-n The Artists Information Company
I observe light and structure, and the relationship between the two. In sculpture, photography and installation I explore the way the sun and artificial light transform an object in a visual way, exposing structural details of everyday objects and materials. Working with natural light brings in the idea of chance and patience while informing a slow-down in pace; I long wanted to document the change light causes to my chosen subjects in film to enable me to tell the story even when light isn’t present, and without the use of words.
I was awarded the a-n Bursary 2018 by a-n, The Artists Information Company to realise this project.
I record my train journeys in moving image. I am fascinated by manmade objects in the fields that we are so familiar with we fail to notice them. They are mundane objects: pylons, renewable energy towers, gas holders, railway tracks, electricity poles, etc. Although if we were able to bring someone over from the very far past they would not be able to tell what these are for; it would be interesting to see how they would understand them.
One of the films I worked on during my editing course was two items I shot at different times and locations. I was curious to see how they read and come together in layers adding to the narrative. Using different editing ideas and effects I simultaneously show both footages at the same time in the same frame, and as such I pull them opposite directions; pylons and renewable energy poles meeting and separating in a slow manner.
I then further edited my film bringing it to black and white, as to focus the eye on structure, and making it wide screen.
