Past Exhibition – 14 June – 17 July 2012
British artist James Dean Diamond creates a compelling photographic series of alternative worlds entitled ‘Trilogy’. Part 1, ‘Death In A Place like This,’ Part 2, ‘The Bleak Existence Of A Synthetic’ and Part 3, ‘Approaching The Void.’
Each part of the ‘Trilogy’ is framed by a distinct aesthetic and an original soundscape. This journey evolves to suggest in Part 1, our protagonist dies, in Part 2, the character is transformed and resurrected as an artificial being, the Synthetic and in Part 3, the Synthetic contemplates extinguishing his life-force.
Diamond makes large-scale installations to explore notions of escapism, artificial intelligence, memories, displacement and death. The visceral works are an interpretation of an urban environment, transforming the light, surroundings and surfaces to introduce an inspiring visual language.
