Through my work I seek to break down the interference of texture, visual noise, a constant which closely parallels internal muttering, thoughts we often find hard to escape. Utilising long exposures, often up to eight hours, I am able to visually average a series of events, the resulting image akin to aural white noise.
Such images do not represent place, not in the physical form at least. Rather I invite viewers to find their own space within each image. White noise has no message, it does not tell a story nor impose its agenda upon you. It is a place where one is able to compile their own experiences, to form feeling, without guidance.
