Work: 2 News From Nowhere
The work 'News From Nowhere' depicts a journey through an alternate English landscape.
These photographs, composited from several exposures, present idealised views similar to computer generated architectural visuals with features such as the sky being repeated throughout. Many of the works contain formal and intellectual elements from Romanticism.
The terrain is dominated by man-made structures whilst natural features are manipulated to suit human needs. In many ways these are contrived places; familiar yet somehow different, somewhere but at the same time nowhere.
The work is realised as photographic prints, an artist's book and limited edition postcards creating a participatory element; the audience is invited to take part in the artist's journey by becoming recipients of the postcards.
