With the “Strange Attractors” layers have been achieved physically through the sandwiching of details of 19th and 20th century paintings with details of recorded popular culture from newspapers, television, advertising, icons etc thereby creating still a third persona yet more commodified. Recognising this quality, I have further reinforced their impact by the sheer volume of their production. This particular configuration was last shown at the Light gallery in Stepney with its total sum edited down to 88 images simply because collectively they wallpapered the entire space. Presented wall to wall and floor to ceiling, the Attractors affront the viewer in a similar way to displays in electrical goods stores with a myriad of televisions all stacked up and turned on to individual channels. The end result is one that is very watchable perhaps but indigestible when seen en masse.
