FOCAL POINT

“focal point” comprises over-sized photographic cityscapes displayed on LCD panels. In the manner of striptease, only a fraction of a large pictorial space is revealed whilst another is in the process of being concealed.

The raw material of each cityscape - collages consisting of hundreds of individual images of neon advertisements gathered in European and Asian metropolis as well as birds-eye views of the greater urban environment - appear as if viewed remotely through a surveillance camera.

Different aspects of visuality are juxtaposed and presented both through reception of the photographically produced image, and through an element of voyeurism which this project produces. Yet, the viewer is not offered an abstract that can be re-gathered and, with scrutiny might otherwise form a unified image. Rather, pictorial space is presented as a source of data that may be investigated through an agency which is itself inherent in the artifice of each picture space.
