Still Life

V&A Collection

Still life in the form of plants and flowers occupy the booth and these works explore the creation of optical illusions through collaging individual strips in different ways. Standard booth lighting results in top lit strips.

When reversed and stuck down in chequerboard fashion, the visual sensations of pulsing movement occur and the vertical bands of photographs seem to warp and flex before one’s eyes – thus combining nature with optics.
