When the sun sets, we light the rooms of our houses and shut out the cold, enigmatic night. Perhaps we put the outside world from our minds. Perhaps if we glance out at the darkness, our imagination projects figures, colours, creatures – threats and curiosities. Or, perhaps we shine a light to discover what the night really contains; perhaps we capture it like a set of silver eyes in the headlights.
How our perceptions are turned on their heads when the warmth and security of light are removed. How we question that which seems given. Land is many things to many different people, and the work published in this series will surely encourage you to question what it is to you.
