A sequence of 15 prints which combines an interest in photographic point of view and print reproducibility. Drawing upon J.M.W. Turner’s apocryphal genesis of his painting “Snow-Storm” (and its later engraved print reproduction) where the artist was “lashed” to the mast of a steamer ship in order to experience first hand the effects of a storm at sea, this sequence of prints re-produces, by affixing a camera to the spinning cylinder of a printing press, a circular (vortex-like) encounter between machine and the disorientating effects of “weather”.
