I am still working on the Digitise series and other pieces, but have now started to work on ideas that came up in the Photoshoot series. I have started working on photographic images forming the basis of ‘arenas’. The idea started in Snapshots and was defined in Photoshoots but the idea has somewhat changed.
I may go back to the original context for the idea, but for now the idea works well in the ‘As If’ series. The first ‘arenas’ are Launch Pad As If and Landing Space As If, where the almost plausible arena is open to interpretation because of the inconsistencies in the juxtaposed images used.
There is no overarching compositional frame like in the Fighting Teremaire As If, piece that I made earlier, but they do have some consistency implied in the arena formed. It bridges reality and fantacy with a sci-fi reference as the previous piece did but works differently. Hmm but where next with this . . .
