I work with conventional photographic material, hovering between purism and abstract. The series presented is based on random discarded photographic materials which are scanned and reveal hidden layers of active energy. This initially happened quite by accident, and inspired by (The photograph - Dust Breeding) jointly created by Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp, and the work of Susan Derges, felt that such imagery had a place. The only choices I make are whether or not it works for me. Because of the random nature of the event I regard that there is not a conscious decision in how the event occurs. I regard it much in the sense of the search for dark matter.
