Grinlow Art Trail, Buxton, Derbyshire, 11th-13th July 2014

As part of Buxton Festival Fringe’s first Grinlow Art Trail I installed a specially made version of I am a Traveller in Both Time and Space into the Trail’s woodland setting. The imagery this time was specific to Buxton, Grinlow Wood and the surrounding landscape and was an acknowledgement of and reflection on my roots, both geographical and emotional. After much travelling through time and space I find myself once more, temporally and temporarily, ‘home’.

My contribution to the exhibition Timeslip, on show in Stall Street, Bath, UK, from 23rd May to 8th June, is a 3 Dimensional Collage constructed from hinged mirror tiles and old snapshots taken in different parts of the world and at different periods of time. Laying the photographs down on the surface of a plinth and then standing the hinged mirrors over them in a carefully arranged configuration the work, I am a Traveller in Both Time and Space, creates a kaleidoscope of images endlessly repeating themselves into an infinite and seemingly impossible space. Taking techniques originally used by William S. Burroughs over fifty years ago I am a Traveller… develops these techniques further to illustrate how hidden dimensions may exist within the ones we are more commonly aware of. The work is presented as an homage to Burroughs in this, the one hundredth anniversary year of his birth.

Photography is time travel. In this series I take photographs from different times and of different places from my own personal collection and merge them in a visual representation of memory, place and identity.
