I created these digital collage pieces for Forage Press, as an interpretation of the concept of layers, texture, grit, flesh, beauty as seen in Tim Hecker’s, and Ben Frost’s work. Notably, the title In Flesh and Blood of Frost’s piece for Wayne McGregor’s 2010 production FAR.
The sonic characteristics of this track, and the other parts had an effect on me, and influenced my decision making.
Titles like Sinew/Bone; Light/Shadow; and After Death, Nothing Is conjured imagery in mind that were approximate, yet undefined. As I tried to hold onto visual explanations, the closer I got, the further and unclear it all became.
I see now that in Explorations I have attempted to describe what I have heard, and the results show that halfway point. In some ways, unrealised.
Forage Press was an ongoing online publication by Tomi Lahdesmaki, bringing together artists from across the globe to respond in visual and other means to music.
