This man has genuine powers which he abuses (2012) - Installation -  Projection with suspended perspex lenses, chain and weights

 

This man has genuine powers which he abuses is part of a recent series of installation works in which I use de-focused 35mm slides. Using externally suspended lenses I then  re-focus elements of the images in order to suggest that they are manipulated by mysterious external forces.

 

By suspending lenses on chains they are free to move, ever-so-slightly unlocking the static photographs causing the visible sections of their surfaces to fluctuate. Ideas of the staged, the invented and the real are central to this work  scientific, part hypnotically induced illusion; like an occult phenomenon occurring right in front of our eyes.
