Bathosphere was an experimental video with soundtrack by Tim Sayer. The work began life during walks along the beach where I noticed I was as visually drawn to the “pollution”- the flotsam and rubbish, as the “natural environment”- the seaweed and seagull feathers. This prompted thinking about the way we use the world “natural” and the complexity of our notion of beauty. The iridescence sheen of oil is beautiful (in my eyes) yet its also toxic. The idea was to experiment with an aesthetic deep dive into the visual possibilities of this environment, rubbish and all, and see what it might evoke transformed beyond its immediately recognisable form.
