The experimental issue features four new projects that either work through experimental methods or are about those methods. Artist Robin Price has been working with environmental atmospheric scientist Francis Pope to find a way of making air
pollution visible through photography. Malin Starrett wants to understand our everyday
technological world using research approaches that challenge the need for a laboratory filled with expensive machines. His research has led him to examine the colour effects produced by fluorescent lights which a billion or more people are working under every day. These photographs reveal another reality lit by colour flashes that we are not usually consciously aware of.
Susan MacWilliam is interested in histories of paranormal and perceptual phenomena. She has been working with the archives of the Parapsychology Laboratory Records housed at Duke University in North Carolina. MacWilliam has selected images from the archive and produced a series of her own photographs that employ the iconography of the card matching experiments and laboratory methods aimed at producing results acceptable to science. Jamin Keogh’s work also explores a perceptual phenomenon, that of the coastal horizon line. And also like MacWilliam is driven by a sense of ‘reaching for something that is always just beyond my grasp’. Keogh’s experiments were aided by
collaborators and advisors from the fields of optics, engineering and cartography.
Alongside the usual extensive reviews of exhibitions and books from the last three months this is your essential roundup of the world of contemporary photography.
