Through observing and clinically documenting the effects of time I am able to categorize and highlight aspects of decay in organic material. I examine each object individually in an attempt to transform perceptions of aesthetic beauty through decay. This passion for capturing time and the process of documentation culminates from generations of my family’s work with Newman Sinclair, pioneering the development of cameras for exploration. This included aiding Captain Scott’s Expedition to Antarctica and the development of high altitude cameras for the 1952/53 Expedition to Mount Everest. The desire to explore, capture and observe time has been the principle element within my work, enabling me to scrutinize the aesthetics of captured time in its relation to real time.
