Cartography – M1 & M2 to South Series

I use the local landscape as the canvas. Traffic is the ink and the camera my drawing tool as I control the freehand long exposure photographing lines of light created by vehicles passing by. My process involves working with a degree of chance, I observe how the subject unknowingly aids the final outcome. The movement of the camera allows for accidental drawing of lines of light. This playfulness adds to my process, enriching the final photographic drawing which I deconstruct and visualise in three dimensional neon installations. This enables the viewers to peer into previously unseen patterns and glimpse transitory movements captured in neon.
