Apparitions

‘ The family, as the immediate substantiality of mind, is specifically characterised by love, which is mind’s feeling of its own unity. Hence in a family, one’s frame of mind is to have self-consciousness of one’s individuality within this unity as the absolute essence of oneself, with the result that one is in it not as an independent person but as a member.’

- Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Apparitions is a portrait of home as experienced over extended periods of time, virtually & remotely. All the images are made using screen captures over a series of Skype conversations and because of the quality of the connection, the images are often pixelated, creating abstractions of colour and form. ‘Apparitions’ explores the effect that time and technology have in the development and perception of spaces and relationships.
