Evidence from the Religion of Technology, benchmarks a significant shift in Lloyd Godman’s art practice. Here we see a shift from camera, film and black and white photography into a fully committed exploration of the photogram (camera-less photography) and abstract use of vibrant colour. The multiple exposure colour photogram process reproduces mundane objects in an abstract colour that is further disguised by the interwoven layering. These are the objects we once desired, but have since discarded, the photograms are an aesthetic archaeological site.
This series of books traces the evolution of the artist’s practice from traditional photographic techniques through to his innovative suspended rotating living air plant sculptures. Through parallel practices as artist and organic gardener, and making a connection between photosynthesis and the role of light in photographic practice, Lloyd Godman presents living plants as ‘super-sustainable’ sculptures. There is a strong environmental thread that binds his diverse oeuvre then opens a portal to conceive the planet as a 'giant living abstract photograph' with a consequential shift from environmental art as comment to environmental activism.
