Light and Dark - 2004
An ongoing series of works made and shown in a variety of contexts and sites. Initially this work was exhibited in a very small attic at the top of 6 flights of very narrow and rickety stairs! I blacked out the space and asked that only one or two visitors enter the space and view the work with small penlight torches. The images were made more alive this way and made the experience of viewing these works far more intense. This has been something I have been thinking about for a long time - how to make people spend time in front of photographic images.
