'Being Alive' - conceptual image

September 3, 2017

I am working on producing work for an upcoming exhibition as part of the RAW Artists Gold Coast Festival in October (see the contributors here):  


 My theme is conceptual art.  Its something I've always wanted to try with my photography.  


This weekend I wanted to produce and image based on the theme 'chasing time'.  It was going to feature a levitating model with her leg tied to a rock,   and a grandfather clock floating above her head in a dark forest.  But certain events changed the course for me;  My model wasn't feeling well so I stepped in.  Also when I arrived, pre-dawn at my remote specific location, a film crew had firmly been established at the exact location that I had planned to shoot at,.. so I needed to find another spot.  By the time I arrived there, the sun had already announced the day's arrival.  Plus, in post production  the clock just didn't look believable... perhaps a reflection of where my skills need refining.  


However, I didn't want to throw away the image just because things didn't go according to plan!   I realised that it still had meaning.  


I felt that the whole morning's events was a reflection of what it is to be alive.  Having unexpected challenges that steer you onto a completely differnet path.  Sometimes you want to go in a certain direction, but you're held back by circumstance or fear.  


Being alive is a completely different experience for each person, but for me, I am often away in my own little world, daydreaming of adventure,
