§ equivalent: V {skyspace}

Alfred Stieglitz produced a body of photographic works within which he explored the notion that a photograph could become an equivalent. His subject was the sky. The Queensgate Market is remarkable for its roof and the way in which it is an abstraction of natural phenomena (light, clouds, rain, wind). This work explores the roof as an equivalent space. The piece consists of a derive (‘to drift’) of the market terrain within a fixed period of time. Visual and textual experiences create a database of records in the form of photographs ( = light, colour, movement) and texts ( = manifestos, observations). As a generative cinema work, the database reflects the aesthetic potential of the market roof space.

Space, Place, Action
Temporary Contemporary [Huddersfield, UK]

This exhibition brings together artists and designers from the Department of Art and Communication in the School of Art, Design and Architecture, to explore the themes ‘place’ ‘space’ and ‘action’. Each piece on display presents stories, experiences and imaginary interactions with these broad and sometimes loaded terms. You will find responses that engage directly with the architectural structure of the market itself, some that explore the mental space of histories and memories, others that dialogue with different stimuli ranging from open landscapes and urban sprawls, through to architectural interiors and the intimacies of thinking in studio environments.

Considering different ways of experiencing what is around us, in and through the practice of making, has been part of the process of activating this exhibition space. The work covers a board range of media including painting, illustration, photography, digital design, sculpture and video work.
