Black Out Project 2009.

Developed from a desire to give a photograph more weight or autonomy, the Black Out Project involved physically removing the content of a photograph from its surroundings, in turn altering the space that served as its original subject-matter. The intervention had a dual-function whereby the photograph became closer to that of an original or 'one-off', while the space itself was transformed into an abstract sculpture or relief, offering a different way to experience a photograph. This principle was applied across a variety of medium and the project has served as the genesis for subsequent works.
