I am really lucky to be exhibiting my Foundation final project in two locations in the Grosvenor Building rather than the usual single space.  In the dark room I am displaying lit glass and perspex pictures.   In the main room, I am displaying my glass pictures.  All of which were created for my Final Major Project.

An exploration into disembodied fragments held within our memory and how they may serve to create the intense, otherworldly and often uncanny feelings of deja-vu.

The large square pictures were made by a combination of etching photographs onto glass, employing mirrors, acetate prints, tracing paper and l.e.d lights.

The frames were handmade, specifically for this purpose, as the sheets of glass and mirrors needed to be held apart for the effect to work.  I employed the use of mirrors to inject the “juddery” emotions evoked in my prior double exposure photography experiments earlier on in this project.

  1. Amazing work after just one year of study, I have seen this work in person, it works beautifully together and is certainly impressive.

    I would love to have these on my walls!

    Well done Helen, I look forward to seeing your future work.
