These are images of my first installation exhibited as part of the end of year show at Anniesland college this year.
The concept is the existence of buildings, and how a structure can convey a certain presence in its construction and its demolition. I'm interested in the shadows that buildings cast over an area, and how these can be manipulated to take on different forms.
I used scaffolding fabric to create varied forms and used differnet lighting setups to cast subtle shadows onto the installation space.
In the centre of the installation sits a peephole box which has more shadow experimentation inside.
I am developing this installation's elements further in my future work.

It took me ages to choose just 2 photographs, as there's a limit on how many you can enter, the options are to just go for a single image, or a series of photos. I've compromised on this and gone for a twin set of images that capture the type of style I've been experimenting with, and they are the only ones I have which festure a human figure, namely me, which I think is interesting as a look into the viewpoint of the photographer. These images are collectively under the title 'Filter'.
Looking forward to seeing some interesting work in this exhibition.
