Desense

This multimedia body of work was created as a response to International broadcast news imagery, and the potentially diminished role it plays in an age of total image saturation.

Sourced by culling every image from the BBC International website over a month long period in 2010, Desense takes its visual cues from the uncanny world of the paint swatch brochure.

Desense comprised of an Installation, web based multimedia piece, printed output and ongoing screen based images. Desense was shown in part during Bradford’s International Photography Festival, Ways of Looking in 2011.

In addition an online continuation of this work can be found  here: NewSwatch
