3.1 - Practice and Research About

Pre-history 1

This Guy… (The Failed Minimalist)

This first selection of four pictures illustrates something I would like to develop further as I start this third stage of the OCA degree. The second half of DIC allowed me to examine some of  the mass of stuff that had moved house with me a year or so earlier and which hadn’t found a home yet.

fig.1 – this guy expands to fit all available space (expanded)
fig.2 – this guy doesn’t know when to stop
fig.3 – this guy can be read like a book
fig.4 – this guy fails to keep things in perspective

The title for the final assignment’s set of twelve images came from a remark made by fellow-student Nuala Mahon, at Forum Live: ‘You look at all this stuff and you wonder, “Who is this guy?”’

Pre-History 2


Travel is an ongoing theme that runs through my work for the OCA. Here are three journeys – one made during Landscape with the other two during Digital Image and Culture –  visualised as four narratives of movement.

fig.1: Against the Current – A Journey (LPE A2, revised for assessment, 2022)
fig.2: Unfolding a Cyanotype Map of the Lea (LPE A2, 2021)
fig.3: Arlanda Airport Express (DIC A1, 2020)
fig.4: Frankfurt to Munich by ICE (DIC A5, 2020)
