Time Passes. Listen. Time PassesResponse to environment informs Jayne's photographic practice. She questions perceived understandings of landscape as both physical reality and visual representation. Landscape is mainly understood in our consciousnesses as an environment which offers a sense of freedom and escapism. Through this work in the South Wales valleys, an area rich in its diverse history encompassing subtle elements of human habitation, past and present, Jayne is questioning the notion of freedom and escapism in the landscape, that the open landscape does not always offer what one might be seeking to gain through being in that environment. Dead ends created through human interaction within the open environment are present, creating a subtle visual contradiction between the idealized landscape and the reality of place.
