The Lexis Project
'The Lexis Project' (titled to reflect Louis Hjelmslev theory) aims to re-examine our understanding of the differences between photography and film. The project consists of a series of constructed film stills influenced by the aesthetic of neo-noir cinema. When exhibited, these stills are shown as a montage of individual sequences that utilise sound recordings and video editing techniques, in a manner similar to that of Chris Marker's 1962 film La Jetee, thus providing a multisensory experience that extends meaning beyond the single still image. Enabling the viewer to explore the construction of narrative and meaning, in relation to theories on temporality and spectatorship, across both photography and cinema.
