9. The Drift




Process Camera | Film | Location X2 | 35mm Double Exposures

           
Walking between locations. Images physically meshed together in one image. Images out of alignment, overlapped, double exposed. Carefully considered locations; The General Cemetery and City Centre re-developments. Old, decaying urban infrastructure and spanking new student flat complexes. The city in the dead of night and the city centre river Don in the sunshine. Very small, discreet prints.

Walking. Journeys. Maps. The path of least resistance.

“With cities, it is as with dreams: everything imaginable can be dreamed, but even the most unexpected dream is a rebus that conceals a desire or, its reverse, a fear. Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”

From Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
