'Landings' is a collection of work-in-progress exhibitions by students and staff of the Online MA Photography course at Falmouth University.

 

In my works below which represent the "Who is responsible' sub-theme within the main, very broad 'Searching for meaning' theme, I want to communicate my interest in the ordinary materials and objects I am surrounded with and interact on a daily basis. I am looking for the ways to visually articulate my fascination with some of their properties which are for me very often more important than their primary function. By taking them out of their ordinary context, I am revealing the essence of their form which is hidden under the layer of the utilitarian values and commonly acquired meanings.

Most of those objects and materials are by-products of consumerism (products packaging), very recent phenomenon of online shopping (postal and packaging supplies) and the act of creating another objects (sand paper, latex gloves etc.).
