In digital culture where the majority of photographs exist only as intangible and virtual images on-screen, my practice exposes the relationships between the object, space and the viewer. As ‘found photographs’, in their original state, these images are off-cuts and test strips; rejected photographs that exist in between the click of the shutter and the final print. They are a byproduct of the analogue process that does not normally exist within the visual field. Through the act of salvaging and re-animating their original form, they are brought back from the dead and into the light, so that their potential as new objects can be realized. Exaggerating their original size and form forces the viewer to have a physical engagement with the work. This is counter to the virtual interactions that take place more and more within a current screen-culture.
