Abstract

'And Travelling Often In The Cut He Makes' is a multimedia installation exploring landscape and digital imaging. Scenes have been constructed using a variety of imaging techniques such as Reflectance Transformation Imaging and Structure From Motion as well as AI software. These have been spliced together with footage of the capture process itself, where the flash of the lights and the sound of the camera shutter are embedded into the final edit. The title of the piece is a line from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Blight, a poem which laments the pervasiveness of scientific method at the expense of innate experiences of the landscape. In this video the technique of Reflectance Transformation Imaging has been warped, something Dawson calls Dirty RTI. In this instance sunlight has been reintroduced into the production of these pictures and the arc of the sun has been used to assemble the synthetic images. This extends Dawsons work with Diffracting Digital Images a way of working which explores patterns of diffraction and their value. 'And Travelling Often In The Cut He Makes' was made for the exhibition Horizon (Beyond Landscape) curated by Alexander Hinks at The Cello Factory London July 2022.
