'coincidence – correlation'. 2022


#15 Periastra : Participants : Steven Scott

Steven Scott is a London based artist working with moving image, light, photography, text and print. He utilises processes of mirroring, repetition, phasing and extended duration so that the perception of movement and stasis may become indistinguishable and the image and its subject begin to separate.

He has recently completed a PhD in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art, London. Some recent exhibitions include: Galerie Ruimte Morguen, Antwerp, Belgium; Casa Contemporanea, Sao Paulo, Brazil; Focal Point Gallery, Southend; Dyson Gallery, RCA, London and Contemporary Art Platform, Kuwait City, Kuwait


About the artwork

'coincidence – correlation'

Four LED clocks, hacked to display default zeros at slightly different intervals 

Two double exposed photograms 

This composite work continues my research into the presentation of interference patterns formed from the interplay of repeating parts. Here these repetitions result in misalignments that might function both as an index and as a schematic representation of that interplay.
