Click to preview Mesmerised: an experiment in flow photo book

Projecting overhead transparencies of drawings that I have previously made allowed me to create a moving image from which the following stills were taken. The drawings on the transparencies are never fully revealed and they themselves are ambiguous.

This means that the ambiguity of line and tone allows each viewer to create their own meaning. Some may see a dawn, others may see people dancing: Yet others may see nothing but be lost in the dynamic movement. Miscellany allows the projection to become dreamlike: as it crosses cultural borders and enters the realm of the imagination regardless of age, cultural background or gender.

Ephemeral in nature the book examines the process of being mesmerized by documenting two works, firstly the video created and secondly photographs that document spontaneous automatic writing that was done over five hours in response to the video.


About the Author

Emma Rochester
gatherer Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Having combined two degrees from different Visual Arts institutes from two widely different parts of Australia. I have been educated in a technique that combines radical art making practice with a traditional and psychological approach.

A sentient artist, I don't see a finished art work in my minds eye but immerse myself in the process of art making. I create pieces that respond emotionally and with feeling to conceptual theories such as cartography and in my first book the human body.
