Praxis - 2015
An aesthetic translation of a sequential process - the act of taking a photograph and the capture of light to make an image - 'Praxis' considers the potential of that image when interpreted by machine. Sent forth into a world no longer bound by geography, interpolated data mutates; becomes fluid; redefined - a frozen slice of time first stirs then manifests as sound - physical form represented in code. Realised as moving image: 'Praxis' slow progression echoes our anxiety when faced with change and uses the practice of photographic creation to attempt a theoretical comment on the consequences of the digital revolution as we enter a post-digital age.
