Scattered Signals engages with the city as an arena in which the panic and suspicion of the current political climate are played out.
The street photographer is now stuck between a public unease with an increasingly voyeuristic society, and political concerns about security and dissent. Both act to make problematic any observation other than the sanctioned or the official.
Attempting to deal imaginatively with encounters of suspicion while photographing, I took up the implied idea of my shots as evidence of intrigue and drama. From numerous shots taken in cities I arrange moments, expressions and movements that can be construed as suspicious or unnerving. Playing on the panic and suspicion that seem to permeate our dominant social narratives, I weave suggestive pseudo narratives that present the public domain as an unsettled, tense place.
