The photographs' details have been transformed and transferred to reconstruct images of reshaped and altered patterns; they depict unconventional structures. This experience of photography has encouraged me to branch out further into video installation work as this would allow yet further possibilities regarding the deliberate distortion of patterns. For the video, there is no cultural or historical reference, as the subject matter consists of the geological strata, using distorted light to reflect how the emitted light can be altered and deciphered by the audience. In this work, I am creating a visual parallel of how light can join with its present space by projecting it onto uneven shaped plinths or objects.

Information about the installation

Equipment Video installation. projection onto plinths, wall and shapes using Final Cut Programme Software Programmes. Using repetition and reflection, as well as a deliberately elusive and ephemeral visual language, I have developed the installation as a continuation of my drawn and photographic work – and as a bridge between the two. Had it been possible to place them together, the relationship between the static images and the projection would have been more obvious to the audience, whereas now they may appear to be standalone shows. However, displaying them separately means the viewer can devote their entire attention to each aspect of the work without making comparisons with other elements. Within the installation, the muslin drapes are integral to the walls and have been attached by staples to wooden strips at a high level, for consistency. I realised they blended with the wall and I would be able to benefit from using them, creating a relationship with the plinths and modular features.
Technical Bernd and Hilla Becher's photography of architecture, structural buildings as monumental symbols, has given me insight into the forms of buildings and encouraged me to go out and photograph structures. They had a concern with extracting subject matter from its surroundings, comparing shapes and forms. I have chosen to use unusual angles, thereby gaining a different perception which raised my awareness of the detail within the structures. I have incorporated some of these characteristics in my work to mimic and expand a field, using my impressions of the buildings themselves in conjunction with their transformation in the images.
