Chaos, Order

Chaos, Order intended to explore the concept of unrepeatability and the subjectivity within the creation of the new. This was executed via the means of gesture and natural human fallibility; how an action can be performed in the same manner x number of times, but never identically. Capturing the results of these actions is the camera, which, paradoxically, executes the same process repeatedly with expected results; as Thierry De Duve wrote, the snapshot “steals life. Intended to signify natural movement, it only produces a petrified analogue of it”. The work consisted of multiple large-scale prints of grids, with many similar photographs. None are identical; a degree of the artist’s subjectivity is applied to every image but is only ever implied, as is a conversation on the wider art sphere, and our individual perceptions of what art can be.

This body of work was my graduate project at Falmouth, and hence it was displayed at both my graduate show, and at Free Range 2019, London.
