N.B. Since the inception of Blooms as a standalone video work in 2015, this piece has become a full body of work formed of 3 videos, a series of prints, and an interative installation.
links to the various aspects and documentation of the work can be found below the video -
if you've found yourself at this page because of a festival application, please do check-out the Frequency Festival 2017 documentation pdf and facebook photo album.
for those of a technical disposition, you can also download an example installation pack and the pre-flight gallery plan for the Frequency Festival 2017 gallery show.





"Bloom" is a continuation of my investigation into virtual SlitScan video techniques and represents an invitation to appreciate the beauty of the natural world
through a different temporal lens whilst illustrating one of nature's fundamental trigonometric relationships : that of circle and sin wave.

By shooting a selection of garden and commercial flowers slowly rotating on a hacked record turntable and processing the footage with custom
scanline recomposition software, I arrive at an output part-way between the artifice of computer graphics and the honesty of the original organic forms.

As with my other work, a primary motivator is to discover a new temporal perspective and to question the validity of linear 'reality' -
some of the shots I present here swap a spatial dimension for time, whilst others arguably exist in a time/space-space/time positioned inbetween dimensions.

In addition to the main video output of the project :
a selection of limited edition prints derived from this work are available at virtualgallery.com
and a second video revealing (some) of my process can be found here.
