1991 (8 elements)
‘What is and what may have been. It is all the same wherever you go. Together is all we are. But we don’t all see things the same way around. The flow of life is the stream in which we live. It depends upon which way round you look at things. Our perceptions play games with ourselves, we just don’t notice.’ (from Hags book‘How Things Are’)
The ‘Invert-ables’ are an unfinished series of pictures . Some of them can be viewed either way around so I have added them all either way around. If you get board with it one way on your wall you can always turn it around. You can do that with anything. Its wonderful how our brain then re-makes sense of the picture.
An astute viewer will note that there is one element in each Invert-able which moves forward to the next image. This was done purposely to enable an animation to be made where one entered the first photograph and then proceeded on a magical journey moving through the sequence without knowing you were preceding through a series of photographic prints. A video was made of this journey with limited success due to my poor, neigh bad, rostrum camera abilities. However in this digital age it can now be made with perfection.
