I keep trying to make sense of things by adopting pseudo-scientific strategies and anthropological methods of recording to analyse â€˜how things areâ€™. I work outdoors a lot experimenting with how far things are and how fast they move. Iâ€™m curious as to how our understanding of the physical world is shaped by the limitations of the body we inhabit and how that alters with the use of communication & recording technologies and transportation and am drawn to the contradictions that arise when we use these tools, instruments & guides.
It touches on the relationships between the scientific and artistic approaches to making sense of the world and questions ideas around the notion of â€˜truthâ€™. So far the work has manifested as sound, video, performance, installation, films, drawing and photography.
Iâ€™m currently working on a new commission involving people jumping up and down on far away islands in Finland and learning about the history of photography. See some of my work at boblevene.co.uk
