Bath Fringe Festival

Image (c) Rhys Jones - Unseen Light Postcard Installation May/June 2009
Our MA Part I exhibit is opening in the Walcot Chapel, Bath on Friday 22 May 18.00 - 21.00 and will be running from Saturday 23rd May until Sunday 7th June as part of the 2009 Bath Fringe Festival. I am planning to submit a series of images - static and in motion - which portray a reflection of an unseen and sometimes hidden light in which we exist. The world of reflections, dreams, traces of the present and past and pointers to our future. This is a very different and conscious shift in the style in which I am currently working. The camera is almost being used as part of the storytelling and sitting within an environment rather than as an instrument to depict. What we see when we look at a reflection depends on our mood, the atmosphere around us, whether we are alone or in a crowd, what we are thinking about past, present and future. We can also see when we are in a dream. It is very difficult and complex to read into a mind what is going on when we look at something.
