Biosigna

Biosigna
This body of work known as Biosigna seeks to explore the nature of landscape and place. The term means Life Signals, and allows the natural environment a collaborative role in the image making process.
Fragments of the original are still visible; however, the obliteration of what was - is now blended into a new vision.
The engagement with an experimental photographic practice incorporates the ritual burying and exhuming of negatives in a number of different locations in the Teign Valley, South Devon, over a period of several weeks. It has produced a series of unique images, created in collaboration with the artist, natural environment and time. The negatives now mediate a new message, and reflect the changing state of flux within the natural world.
The work looks at the landscape at close quarters, and the new ocular is exciting, unpredictable and engaging. An attachment of these images to a specific place allows for a new visual language of place to be heard. This organic creativity allows the very process of destruction to be a creative force, allowing your eyes to witness a new vision; your imagination can contemplate a revelation where the spirit of place has left its indelible mark. With text blocks interposed throughout this series of images, the intellect is likewise challenged.
