I Seem To be A Verb
'I Seem To Be A Verb’ continues Simon Hodgson's research into the relationship between the logic of the concept and beauty of the image.
My practice is primarily concerned with an examination of the triangular relationship between the body, landscape and the built environment. I’m interested in images and the history of image making, in particular the constructs around building illusionary spaces within which we can imagine ourselves inhabiting and its evolution to what might be described, now, as an immersive space; which can occupy real and imagined space. As a collective, we visualise how we might inhabit a place and configure the location and our imagination to fit. I’m interested in investigating sculpture within that broader visualising culture: and its role in ‘instituting a place’.
