Supermoons, 2015-

This ongoing series of photographs and photo-montages is partly inspired by the Kessler syndrome, ruminating on the benefit/ harm debate of space debris. With humankind surrounding itself, are we defending or imprisoning the next generation?

Constructed from fragments of photographs, the map-like aerial aesthetic with its patchwork of territories and settlements infers a possible sinister outlook, highlighting our hunger to explore and exploit the Moon’s abundance of riches. Carving up the lunarscape as we’ve carved up the Earth. The Moon has become highly politicised in recent years, where innocent wonderment has turned to personal greed, more commodity than discovery.

(Supermoon series, milk paint and silver gelatin photographs on hardboard, from 100 x 100cm to 200 x 200cm)
