Arkadia I

Arkadia I

Digital Photography, Memory, Landscape, Digital, 236x106cm
This project started life as a film I took of the Licancabur volcano in the Atacama Desert in the north of Chile. When I got back to London I printed off screenshots of the film and then chose a few which I decided to try transferring onto Japanese paper with acetone, using a printing press. I accidentally placed too much acetone on the images and bleached out all the original colour. This gave it a greenish hue. I decided this fortuitous accident added to the quality of otherwordliness I was looking for. I then collaged my images together from fragments of the transfer and created an imagined landscape which I scanned and printed digitally. The results depict a fragmented and desolate landscape that in its large scale envelops the viewer. This project continues my enquiry into liminal and marginalized places that are fast disappearing into folklore and memory.
