In the series of Photosculptures I have re-configured the framework and conditions in which we normally perceive the photographic image. It is no longer a flat representation or a ‘window onto the world’, but rather a three-dimensional sculpture.
The photograph is printed on canvas, cut into a long ribbon and coiled. I then proceed to reinterpret the image through manipulation by shaping it into a variety of forms.
As viewer’s we are confronted with the materiality of the photographic image as it becomes the object’s skin, or a surface wrapping around space. The end result is no longer a fixed, static image but rather a fragile impermanent form whose presence precedes its content.
