Unstable Constructs


Unstable Constructs. Process and material provide us with objects that are entangled with their means of production. Emerging from the combination of overlapping gradients on seven cylinders of photographic film, the two dimensional photographic medium is transformed into a colour shifting object. Colour fields merge, here through moving around or past the object, an infinite almost liquid colour spectrum emerges.

Through the photographic process and its use of the primary colours of light – red, green and blue – when exposing and developing the film, form and process are, the digital and physical are entangled. Not only is the human eye particularly good at seeing red, green and blue, computer monitors produce their wide range of colours by the use of red, green and blue light-emitting phosphors while traditional colour photography also works by exposing transparent film to the very same colours.
