Concept

The interpretations encounter political statements or disperse cultural observations; correspondence that is not immediate but perhaps depends on the contingencies of travel. Subversive systems of posting and collecting dialogue create the emergence of new narratives that are shared and reacted upon through hybrid texts, images and temporary ownership. Show cased as a touring exhibition at Broadwalk Arts, Bristol then at The Willesden Gallery, London, the works continue to explore language, visual interchange and systematic dialogues.

"It is another nature that speaks to the camera rather than theeye...other in the sense that a space informed by human consciousnessgives way to a space informed by the unconscious... It is through photography that we discover the existence of the opticalunconscious..."
- Walter Benjamin

Foto-Cache is an online repository of forgotten and unwanted cell-phoneimages that participants have 'donated' using their cell phones. Rootedin Benjamin's idea of the "optical unconscious," the project seeks todocument an otherwise unaccounted form of personal media to distil therepressed personality of the collective unconscious.
