This is the invitation for my new exhibition Face/Time, a two-person show with my colleague Kirsten Perry. My half of the exhibition features my project Shroud, a series of graphic black & white representations of heads, derived from my passport photos going back decades. It’s a sort of self-portrait project but without reference to individuality. The heads are atomised by repeated photocopying, becoming abstracted forms like traces on a wall.
Kirsten’s images are from her Masters degree project, drawing the face using the saccadic eye movements captured by a special camera. She is displaying a sequence of prints showing the face image developing over time.
