With my imagery, I attempt to explore the effects of emerging technologies within society. We are becoming more dependent on these technologies, and more detached from real, physical interaction with the world around us. My project Automaton questions this trend through the use of allegory. The basis for each photograph is an event which, through referencing science fiction imagery, begins to question these technologies.
I have made the project so that where possible, every part of the process of creating the work doesn’t rely on these technologies. The project was shot entirely in camera, on film. This method was used to reinforce the idea of the photograph as evidence. The scenes created “exist” on the negative, further subverting this idea. The final output will be chemical prints and zines. These methods bypass any involvement of digital methods, and are physical objects which the viewer can interact with at their own pace.
