Moments, Memory and Mortality captures the feeling of time passing and impressions of the memory of having been there before. My images depicts a fluctuating, often unsettling journey, following the path ahead into the unknown. The metaphorical journey follows a route into the ‘Transitional Space’, which exists between ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ worlds and where primary creativity, or illusion exists.
Sometimes showing calmness and serenity, other times capricious and unsettled, the journey follows a route through feelings and emotions such as confusion, loss, grief, acceptance, and hope as it oscillates towards regeneration and the reconstruction of life after bereavement. Burgeoning equanimity heralds a new equilibrium which is formed as the inner and outer worlds are reconnected.
For this series of images, I have used infrared as this captures the light beyond the visible spectrum and permits transmission of the red region of the light spectrum only. Through conversion to black and white we see where foliage and leaves reflect infrared light rendering them as white.
