Video Joiners

Series of 3 small images?

Video Joiners are an ongoing audiovisual series, where I am experimenting with multi-screen composite images. These have been inspired by the early photographic joiners by David Hockney, where a number of polaroid photos of a space were laid out in a grid. Inspired by this work, and of panoramic photos I had taken as a child, I was intrigued to see what would happen if I added the elements of time and movement.


It initially felt a little sacreligious, as Hockney had intrinsically developed the technique to incorporate time and movement with a series of images taken at different times being seen together.

But I was keen to see what would happen with and developed the concept of a video joiner for a commission at the Cast restaurant and bar at the Nottingham Playhouse. Curated by Casciani Evans Wood, this piece was my first joiner.
