Emergence : Inference (2015)
Video and audio, 25 minutes.Looped projection.
Emergence : Inference (E : I) is an abstract photographic composition with an accompanying soundscape that is specifically designed to allow the viewer to experience the sensitivity of visual perception and how this affects us emotionally. Showing a series of photographs taken on 35mm film, a piece of textured glass slowly changes in hue, luminosity and definition over twenty five minutes.
The underlying issues presented within E : I focus around vision: how we consider what we see, and how what we see affects us as an experience. E : I activates our perceived visual sensitivity not only through encounters with light and illusions created by light and colour, but also by challenging our recognitions and attentiveness in an attempt to stimulate our consciousness.
The repetitive imagery and impression of simplicity that E : I exudes is purposely calculated to create a refined piece with a methodology that is designed to subtly inflict itself upon the viewer. The consequence of the repetition of formlessness is that a higher organisation of matter is achieved that could not have been reached otherwise.
