As part of my interest in sciagraphy (the drawing of shadows), I have been using found objects to form spatial assemblies and to film the shadows that they cast. Continue reading “Polystyrene foam improvised model test”
Found box with bubble wrap floor and open roof filmed in Austinmer, NSW, Australia, using two Firefly 8S (90º FOV) cameras positioned side-by-side, using time-lapse recording at 1 frame every 2 seconds. Continue reading “Austinmer box 1 – split screen”
I have been working with a 7 minute piece of footage shot during the March 2018 snow, from the train window between Wimbledon and Clapham Junction stations, passing through Earlsfield. The footage was compelling largely due to the transformation of the city, both green spaces and built-up areas, by the layer of snow.
I started with the simple triptych format that I had employed in “Approach“, staggering the single vertical format section of footage by just under a second – this was enough to align the objects at a relatively close distance. I used the “Wimbledon A” signal box in the shot below as the register for the time separation. Objects closer and further from the camera are out of alignment between each frame, due to the differential parallax.
I left the sound from the recording (from the carriage from which I filmed), which created an interesting trebling due to the small time offset. Continue reading “Snow Train – work in progress”
While in Grezzo I used the house to make a series of 1:1 cyanotype prints of the sunlight as it entered and moved around the house.
My work filming architectural models led me to consider how I could explore sunlight’s effect on architectural materials, over time, such as fading. As I was familiar with the cyanotype photographic printing process I developed a way of combining cyanotype with models to make prints of the moving sunlight within the models.
