Static, my most recent body of work, takes aspects of my work over the past few years, employing the use of photography, Lidar, and the works created under the heading of ‘Geo-murmuration’s’ and ‘Land Tides’ bringing together various locations and environments into one body of work. Matter and life exist in relative timelines, from Lewisian gneiss, some of the oldest rocks in Britain dating back to around 3000 million years ago to a flying adult mayfly living for as short as 5 minutes. We perceive this within our own life timeline and therefore aspects of the world can appear both static and active to us at the same time. The word 'Static' is an interesting one, a bit of an oxymoron, it can mean lacking in movement, action, or change, but it can also be used in reference to electrical signals of radio frequency, televisions, and landline phones. A crackling or hissing noise, a visually moving and vibrating image or a sound of varying pitch and tone.
