Photograph of Television static, distressed negative hand printed in colour darkroom (The Photo Parlour, Nottingham), made into a slide and then distressed and scanned.  My Work is concerned with media and it’s effects on society; from the phonetic alphabet to the computer, the change that is brought about by the shift in our sensory ratios after the introduction of any new media dictates our pattern of involvement in the new environment that media creates.   It Speaks and yet says Nothing is a physical representation of the idea of the medium as the message, or the content of the medium means little compared to the affect the medium itself has on society. This series focuses on the Television.  “But soft! what light through yonder window breaks?/It speaks, and yet says nothing.” An apt description of TV Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media.
