Lights Out is a journey through spaces where information and entertainment was created, edited and broadcasted to the world. The project focuses on the redundancy of analogue technology, conveyed through the stillness inherent to the absence of action in these spaces. There is a permanent tension between the silence of the outdated equipments and the echoes of what once was broadcasted from them. The images that make up this series are subjectively constructed as a theatrical reality, far removed from what’s apparent to the naked eye. This creative process resonates with the drama of producing and editing media content.
This series was shot between 2009 and 2010 in two iconic buildings of the BBC , Bush House and TV Centre in London. In this work I set out to portrait scenarios that search to establish a silent dialogue with our perception of media and the collective unconscious.
