Roadside Hoarding (Day)
Water-based woodblock
60 x 60 cm

One in a series of prints about industrial towers and landscapes. There is a tension, because we might assume that the slower archaic water-based hand printing technique used here might represent prettier subjects than this.

More is Law X64

105cm x 135cm
September 2011

The titles More is Law X32 and More is Law X64 elude to Moore’s Law, which models the advancement of microprocessors and in consequence the exponential speed of computer processing. Viewed graphically, Moore’s law shows a doubling of processor capacity every 2 years (hence X32, X64 and so on), a trajectory that can be compared with increasing company profits and decreasing employment rates.

The screen prints More is Law X32 and More is Law X64 represent a visual metaphor for this socio/technological evolution. Each print depicts small group of people staring with intrigue and fascination at a subject. These heavily half-toned images are stills taken from Bert Haanstra’s 1966 film of Evoluon, a science museum funded by the Phillips electrical company in Eindhoven. The original subject that captured their attention in the Evoluon has been replaced with a tin can in one and a can opener in the other, each of which are superimposed respectively with X32 and X64 in bold red text. Innocent and open-minded fascination for a technological future becomes dislocated from its Modernist context and is confronted with a numbing provocation: to open the can. Whilst in some ways this remains enigmatic, it certainly suggests an unknown, perilous, potentially synthetic outcome.

Yesteryear IV (4)
42 x 36 x 2.5cms

This is another from the series Yesteryear.Using sections of vintage 'girlie' photographs taken around the turn of the 20th century in a Parisian studio, I have created digital negatives and then physically altered them in an attempt to create not only a sense of time but also an essence of the sad and damaged lives these girls may well have lived. Deep framed in beech with antique white mount and Clearglass for high quality visibility.
