Invisible Layers

Invisible Layers (2015) takes as its starting point the mismatch between experience of the infrastructural landscape and the way this landscape is imaged. The piece uses terrain data from the United States Geographical Service and map data from the crowd-sourced Open Street Map to compile […]

S/N

A video of a murky sea breaking on a dark shale beach. The sky slowly shifts in colour and birds cross the frame, placing the image in the same temporal frame of reference as the viewer.

Unanchored

The shipping forecast is a radio broadcast by the BBC providing a vital set of data about sea conditions in the waters around the UK. To the non-maritime listener, the language used in it is poetic and obscure, as particular areas of water are named […]

The General Situation

The General Situation is a video work that experiments with temporary minimal electronic interventions into the landscape. It documents the installation of a number of small light sources on Chesil Beach beneath a Jurassic period cliff top.

Analogue

Tuning a long-wave radio makes audible the atmospheric conditions that are the basis of radio broadcasting, as the radio receiver interprets the spaces between stations as broadcasts in themselves.

Superstructures

Superstructures is a twin-screen DVD piece that presents the input and output of a bespoke computer program which had been programmed to respond to levels of ambient light.

Unaffected

A light source above ground shines through a disused coal chute into the exhibition space, dramatically lighting dust and cobwebs which move in the breeze.

Hand Dance

The audience members’ improvised hand gestures create developing recursive imagery: the spontaneous, improvised hand gesture of the audience, a performance in miniature, is amplified and multiplied into an evolving and organic image and sound environment.

Oval

To be captured on an elliptical orbit, to be in rotation, but bound to a path that reaches the closest and furthest points of approach.

Counting Time

On entering the space, the viewer is confronted by a projection screen. Visible on the screen is an image of the room and viewer, fed from a video camera near the base of the screen.
