Abstract

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. The piece consists of a derive (‘to drift’) of the market space 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.
