Wandering Around

Postcard and large print

"Produced as well as a postcard, in reference to travelling and tourism, Wandering Around collages together pictures of a single figure, always viewed from behind, surveying the landscape.

Drawn from computer games, movies and early travel photography, the repeated pose is a romantic one, representative of the explorer orĀ  flaneur - the person who walks the city in order to experience it, at once part of it, and apart from it. Suggestions of innocent exploration belie a will to power."

- text by Helen Legg (director Spike Island)
