Hidden In Plain Sight
‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ touches on the cultural politics of being seen, the desire to hide and the perceptual relationship between the visible and invisible. The project began whilst traversing the mountains of Wales and Scotland to find and locate erratic boulders. These boulders migrated upon the glacial ice flow some 12,000 years ago. They are archives of complex imbrications, weathered guardians resting in the temporality of a landscape. The boulders reveal a fundamental asymmetry, of that which can be seen and is unseen. Female forms imprint onto other spaces, folding into a veiled reciprocity between body and place. Together, as a photographic register the materiality of the body and erratic remain indeterminate both open and hidden to the world.
