Daniel Garside is a student in the Bachelor of Science in Photography and Digital Imaging program at the University of Westminster. As Garside describes his studies and his works,
“I study a very technical and scientific course, and so these pieces are interested in the technical challenge of capturing such images, and what this capture could mean for further investigations in related subjects. They were created as part of the ‘Broad Vision’ project at my university (a project that aimed to create links between creatives and scientists) and as an extension to these works I worked with an illustrator named Elizabeth Cowley in order to use this technique to create something more artistic. We worked together on ideas for stenciled patterns in the water, which are really interesting because of the refraction patterns (ripples) that would ‘wrap’ around the edges of the stencils, sometimes radically altering the shape, and bringing a new meaning to the images.”
Currently, Garside is designing a film stock that would work in roughly the same way as a colourblind person’s visual system, operating with only two primaries (sensory wavebands) but getting a fairly full spectrum of colour vision. To see more of Garside’s work, click here.
