Coloured by Hag using a Sci Tex, then called a ‘High End’ Digital Image Manipulation system at Studio 10 for an exhibition ‘Machine Dreams’ at thePhotographers Gallery London (August 1989). This machine costed a fortune then but pales to insignificance compered with what I am now using on my desk at home. I coloured four pictures for this first digital imaging exhibition.
Nothing much exists but energy. If you remove the spaces from a humans atoms then what is left, actual substance, mass, would fit on a pin head. Mass only accounts for 0.01% of what we can sense, (i.e. see, hear, smell and feel.) The rest – 99.99% is energy. This is the energy that is released when a nuclear bomb explodes, a bit of a big bang. The fuel that powers the sun and allows us to survive. What our brain perceives as things – stuff – tables, chairs, the smell of freshly baked bread, sunsets, fire and water, hot and cold, are the subtle fluctuations and movements of energy.
