California 2004. 
 
This image, made just before 
sundown, considers the 
traditional visual motifs of 
the sublime sunset. Rather 
than trying to illicit the 
'perfect moment' the 
upturned lighter acts as a 
kind of inverse black monolith.

The monolith from Kubrick's 
2001: A Space Odyssey, 
a film that explores elements 
of human evolution and 
technology. The setting 
sun is precisely centred, 
cascading the light rays 
through a scratched and 
distorted plastic surface.

Sutherland, Scotland, 2003
C-Type Print 20 x 30 inches

I discovered this plastic rose 
on a remote beach in Scotland. 
I came across many plastic 
flowers placed or washed up 
on the beach. I'd considered 
they were just part of the 
flotsam and jetsam. But 
maybe not - it is my belief 
that the flowers were placed 
at various sites specifically 
as memorial offerings, 
becoming placed and 
displaced by the tide, 
wind and ocean.
