Polariser is a video piece exploring the invisible and visible. I used two polarising filters salvaged from old computer screens. Through the manipulation of these of the filters a window into a different perspective of reality is revealed. A perspective that was originally invisible to the human eye. Polarising filters reveal hidden stresses and tears in plastic that would normally be invisible to the human eye. This work explores how the human senses can be expanded through the poetic use of scientific tools and processes. This piece was made during the COVID-19 lockdown, when I had no access to studio space. I tore apart two old computers to get this effect to work. This work explores found materials in a sort of transformative way. The materials I used for this was a plastic bag and two old computers. This test turned out to be quite beautiful in its own right and has inspired subsequent artworks for me.
