Moments Re-imagined

This is an ongoing body of photo-based work exploring the representation of memory and moment utilizing digital technology in both the creation and final production of each piece.

Working with a singular image (typically travel-related conjuring up personal memories of moment and place) I digitally deconstruct, manipulate, transform and reconstruct the image into an abstracted and altered version of itself - not unlike memories which can be a colourful and/or distorted version of a former moment. The original serves as the informational palette from which to create a symbolic metaphor of memory. While all digital attributes of the original are inherently retained, they have undergone a digital mash-up to arrive at a new visual narrative - that being...the proverbial fish story that just keeps getting bigger and bigger over time.
