Photography: C-type, Digital, Fuji on Paper.
Blast is a C type photographic image, printed on Fuji metallic paper, and Diasec mounted between clear Plexiglass and DiBond. It’s fitted with a hidden subframe, so it appears to float 15mm in front of the wall.
With Blast FIRST I wanted to move on from the symmetry of Flow and create something more explosive, more dynamic, more dramatic, and of course far larger too. The study uses the same basic geometry, ideas and sculptural components as Flow, but reimagines them in a far looser, more haphazard assemblage of parts, pivoting around a constricted core, that creates an explosive blast along the horizon line. The title refers directly to the 1914 publication Blast!, issued in part as a sort of manifesto, by the Vorticists, whose core interest involved creating art that expressed the dynamism of the modern world. It’s a heady concept, a kind of anti-retrogressive stance.
There’s often a delicious, irresistible, foolishness involved with manifestos, so I thought I’d put in a recommendation here for Bruce Mau’s brilliant Incomplete Manifesto, and also Julian Rosefeldt’s extraordinary film Manifesto, just in case you haven’t stumbled across either of them yet. Both are well worth a look.
