A dystopian vision of the world we inhabit captured via the medium of 35mm analogue film stills and an aesthetic taken from post-war Japanese photography. Through using the Are, Bure, Bokeh (Rough, Distorted, Out of Focus) aesthetic that emerged through the devastation of Japan during World War II the films take on a haunting, psychological nature that is intended to disturb and intrigue the viewer. Spontaneously captured on location, the films take on the role of animating the photographer's movement. The use of unpredictable analogue technologies the image captured has become a fabricated reality through the material quality of the film surface and the choice not to remove dust and scratches from the negatives avoiding true documentation of the location.
