Beach Delights


[portfolio_slideshow size=full]

‘Beach Delights’ are images created for this telephone-turned-light box in Portobello, Edinburgh.

A few years ago I started creating self-portraits using a scanner. The scanner being designed for processing and translating data at high speed, whereas when taking these images I had to do the opposite: slow down and hold still.

Creating ‘Beach Delights’ I scanned my own and my kids feet and hands, a toy boot and ice cream and a stick; all referring to the different senses, materials and textures you experience when being on the beach as well as bringing playfulness into it.

Showing the images in bigger than real size invites to look at the hands, feet and objects more closely, to explore ourselves as well as the things and spaces around us.
