9. The Drift





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

           
Walking between 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 river Don in the sunshine.

Images out of alignment, overlapped, double exposed, physically meshed together.

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
