Chameleon Identities Chameleon Identities “This work follows the transformation of a “chameleon” subject within a collaged panoramic image to investigate concepts on identity, plurality, metamorphosis, time, ability of change and the forming of boundaries. As the figure travels between locations it alters its outward expression, forming a different identity depending on its environment.
Shifting Aspects Shifting Aspects “Transformation and identity are key concepts that inhabit my current art making. This work aims to explore the multiple ways gender may be expressed within the one individual in a form which suggests movement and the ability of change. The structure itself is comprised of a series of blocks, one placed on top of the other, which are arranged in a spiral formation.
Dreamscape Dreamscape “The world of dreaming can be an uncanny and mysterious place within our minds. In this series of panoramas I aim to replicate such a place by manipulating the landscape into a dream-like environment. By using cross-processing, unnatural colours and high contrast are produced in the image, creating an atmospheric appearance.
Coastal Grains Coastal Grains “In this work I seek to present an alternative representation of the traditional landscape. Rather than one continuous image, the environment is dissected into several close-up images. These are presented altogether, so that as a whole they form a gestalt of the location.
Back When Back When "In this work I have used childhood toys to revisit my past. The use of black and white film creates a feeling of nostalgia, while the low to ground perspective recreates the viewpoint of a child.” Jessica Sanders, 2007.
City City "This work documents some of the sites of the city, playing with different perspectives and close-up details.” Jessica Sanders, 2009.
Pieces of a Dream Pieces of a Dream "This series of work began my interest with dreaming and my experimentation to re-create the mysterious and strange images that we experience through sleep. The acute cropping only allows the viewer to see part of the subject, creating intrigue and possibly fear as to what is obscured. With this, my use of cross processing allows the colour within the images to appear abnormal, further creating an effect of the uncanny.
Repetition in Nature Repetition in Nature “These works explore my fascination with the mathematical replication of form within the natural world. I began by studying images of fractals, however as I did not wish to use computer generated images, I then studied live botanic specimens to find examples of self-similarity.” Jessica Sanders, 2010.
Light and the Journey Through Space Light and the Journey Through Space “Working with the topic “space”, this artwork alludes to the idea of outer space travel and science fiction projections of other intelligent life. I began by experimenting with the way light appears to travel through physical space as it is captured on film. Using a long shutter speed, patterns are created as the camera is moved over a single light source in a darkened room.
Fabric Manipulations Fabric Manipulations “This work is an experimental piece, playing with the shape and movement of fabric and the body. By viewing the images in inverted colour, the subjects become abstract. Some of the non-living forms then become corporal in appearance aided by the hue and saturation of their new colouring.
