Text image series
An interest in the use of text and word within image and video has been an ongoing concern within my practice. I am experimenting with ways of making the text a part of the visual experience rather than an additional directive or explanation.
Formally integrating text into visual material as word, subtitle or speech can extend the experience of the work. It directly and visually engages the viewer in ways that accompanying texts cannot.
Text can be a catalyst that directs towards new or obscure meaning, it can intensify the ‘experience’ of the work, it can be poetic or it can actively engage the brain with reason at the same time as the visual cortex is activated by the image.
These works all relate to the experience and understanding of landscape in its widest sense. Taking Landscape beyond representation and into a frame of thought and consideration.
