No Network & Field Strength Studies (2008 - 2009)

Integrating almost obsolete equipment with recent technologies No Network explores the tensions between still and moving image. The video offers a glimpse of photographic realism through a journey into and out of abstraction. Location and posture are documented in a specific geographical context relating to the artists own first experiences of mobile technologies whist living in rural Scotland in the 1990’s.
Photographs of the water towers of rural East Anglia, Field Strength Studies document how architectural structures have been corrupted with an altogether modern phenomenon. Antenna, mast and transmitter equipment now make use of this elevated location within the landscape to facilitate our connection to the network. These video and photographic works explore the concept of contactibility from different perspectives, the trust one has in the network and how one feels when isolated from it.
