About the artwork

These images are the result of initial darkroom experiments using a moving light source to illuminate adjacent positions. In darkness a flickering light is refracted and reflected off an arrangement of mirrors and glass onto sheets of photographic paper. The resultant forms and traces of shifting perspectives seem to suggest the dimensions of an expanded architecture, as if distilled from the accumulating frames of a moving image of space.

About the artist

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.
