A WEEK IN CIRCLES
The result of a project undertaken in the first year of my degree. Every hour on the half hour I took a shot of the closest circular object to myself. Stringing all these shots together into one video made a fascinating documentary of my movements at that particular time of year and the surprising beauty that can be found in the simplest of forms.
Christopher mostly works in the medias of photomontage, transfer-printing, painting and photography. Although previous projects have included a three-dimensional kinetic marble-run sculpture as well as a three-metre-long whale/submarine constructed from upcycled materials.
He has established himself as a ‘Brandalist’ focusing predominantly on themes of world and domestic politics, ecology and consumerism.
Much of his work is influenced by the essay The Society of the Spectacle (1967) by Guy Dubord, a polemical and prescient indictment of our image-saturated consumer culture.
By utilising the familiar media platforms of our day-to-day lives Christopher composes recontextualised appropriated material that aims to subvert the machines of predatory corporatism.
Through his practice he hopes to redress the balance of power returning it back to the individual while actively disrupting the hidden deception and manipulation of modern society by the self-reinventing spectacle.
