Science, technology and mankind’s ongoing quest for truth and knowledge have drastically altered our understanding of what reality is. With each new technological advancement we re-appraise our acceptance of what reality might be and our place within it.
In today’s world the computer algorithm prevails, tomorrow something new will emerge. Of Swallows and Ravens is an exploration into some of the ideas behind what is real or what reality may be and the role photography plays as a technology and an observer in creating this reality.
Touching on subjects from quantum mechanics, astronomy and mathematics to philosophical questions of the self and consciousness via cybernetics, space travel and science fiction, photography and its relationship to the real is examined and questioned. Ambiguity, uncertainty and mystery are combined with visualisation, documentation and manipulation to create a kind of spectral dissonance.
