Awakening the Ancestors

If machines are capable of making art, then the copyright owner of art is nature. The diversity of whatever nature is, and the process of looking at nature is what makes you the artist of this world.

A visual language has at its roots in a sense of geometry, a sense of colour, a sense of texture and a sense of space. These tools can be improved by just looking at the world around you and your surroundings.
For me nature works best where there is an idea of mystery rather than reality, so the sculptures of stone circles, hillforts, old walks and lakes provide me with the space to be able to see nature better.

The paths the visual world takes to register simple objects in your mind is complicated and often surprising. It's the space of time it takes between noticing and accepting the world you experience and it is just between forever and the blink of an eye.

The images and video here are my versions of those connections.
If you felt a bit sleepy or relaxed while looking at these then you have experienced this world already. You can call it spiritual awareness, being aware, a psychosis, or even being really out of it, but the process does exist within you and its yours to use.

Happy to sell you copies of my work, if its not on my etsy page email me or dm from my twitter or google+ page. Photographing panoramic landscapes allows me to manipulate images into stereographic projections sometimes known as Round Scapes. The view you end up with is a 360 degree landscape manipulated into a globe.
