All of the photographs shown here were taken in the spirit of experimentation, on my iPhone, and usually, though not exclusively, while I was behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. What is common to every image is that they capture a sense of time and place that contains a rarified quality defined in part by the ‘otherness’ of the location; be it the epic expanse of boundless clouds spread across a Saskatchewan sky, the mythic archipelagos of Fogo Island’s Western Head, or palm trees towering over our passing car in Lankawi, Malaysia.
The ease of using my iPhone in this immediate and from-the-hip mode is a form of exploration which has lead to extensive video image gathering, now used within many of my installations. Yet just as importantly, it has expanded the conceptual discussion into the notion of ‘boundlessness,’ possibility and the sublime, in terms of the unfathomable amount of imagery and information contained within the heart of this little device. At the same time, it has also cracked open interesting considerations about the nature of speed, perception and how we see things, which is continually shifting in an acutely evolutionary way.
