The Flashes, 2019/20

Multichannel animation with sound, screen-printed coal-dust on Kozo paper 65 x 95 cm, plant matter.

Taking wetlands created through coal-mining subsistence as its subject, The Flashes uses animation and installation to reflect on the changed nature of labour practices and the ways that matter is transformed through digitisation. Both the online and physical manifestations of The Flashes are an attempt to emphasise how all digital media is produced by, and dependent on, the physical world; the raw matter and toiling bodies that make ‘the cloud’ happen. In response to pandemic restrictions, the work was also presented online as a series of 3D rendered exhibition spaces.
