SAD LAMP I & II, 2018

Custom made powder-coated steel light boxes, sad lamps in ‘daylight’, digital print on mesh.

This work was developed for the group show EBC019 Photography and Print at East Bristol Contemporary alongside artists Benjamin Jones, Chris Alton and Sean Kerr. Each artist worked with Sean to develop a series of ‘host structures’, sculptures which would host, hold and display different kinds of printed matter. SAD LAMP I & II were presented on a locker room style bench, with both light-boxes and structure alluding to processes of self-care, self-improvement, artifice and surface.
