2013 - 2014

Ongoing project Load takes the form of an archival box which is accumulating content from a network of invited artists.

The intention of Load is to create a material-led dialogue, specifically around the material qualities of photography. This dialogue includes reflection on the evolution of photographic technologies and their material properties, thinking what they can do or mean to the photographic image.

Contributors include:
Richard Bevan, David Bilbrough, Alex Brunt, Joe Clark, Kathryn Faulkner, Dave Harvey, Agnieszka Kozlowska, Andrew Ranville, Rob Smith and Sarah Kate Wilson.
