Through photography and sculpture, my work ‘Stillness and Rest’ explores the complex ecological systems and philosophies that guide our understanding of urban and natural landscapes in an age of digital connectedness, globalisation and travel.
Despite our existence in three-dimensional space, many contemporary interactions with the natural landscape occur through digital displays and two-dimensional images. This project’s approach in creating sculptural and hand-crafted photographic works give a heightened understanding of spatiality, interaction and multiplicitous viewpoints using the photographic image as a mediator for our relationship with the environment.
‘Stillness and Rest’ pulls these ideas together to explore our relationship to two-dimensional images in three-dimensional environments. This new body-of-work further explores existing techniques of paper-sculpture, and presents them in an installation that foregrounds the viewer’s own experience of their movement through the architectural space of the gallery.
