William Henry Carter
Understanding the significance of what we are looking at changes dramatically when we have turned it into something fascinating, fetishised or precious. The physical object as in a photo or old diary or old toy or memento, becomes proof of our reality, of our being and our identity. My intention is to destabilise conventional ways of looking at the artefact or image; the remains from our past. By holding the objects and in this case a toy, we recall a sense of childhood curiosity. Looking into these kaleidoscopes, or observatories, the gradual turning reveals fragmented elements of other photographs and other histories; images are reflected in the mirrors, uncovering a sense of illusion, unknowing and uncanniness.
