Il n'est qu'un oeil, mais, mon Dieu, quel oeil!
My work is an experiment into processes through which forces within the natural world can be captured and utilised to create impressionistic form. Drawing on the practices of Impressionist painter Claude Monet, the work explores notions of repetition, light, colour and balance, combined with a fascination of the artificial nature of the natural world, through control, planning and feedback loops. Using techniques of video capture and nondestructive digital manipulation, the images were created with respect to the natural elements captured in the original source. The results pose a question of reality, time and beauty.
