Krater crater is comprised of two large-scale colour photographs depicting sites of intense human action. Isolated and flattened by the camera lens, these are sites that have been tailored to function as an 'exit point' for the interior forces of being human. Continuing his interest in spaces that show both the exterior traces of human behaviour and offer the potential for psychological escape, Knight presents us with a perspective not necessarily or solely spatial, but also emotional. Casting an analytical gaze over spaces contrived for the purpose of providing a release from stress - such as a squash court ravaged by the repetitious action of slamming and swiping - the sites themselves become functioning valves for psychological tension. Through his documentation, Knight explores the unconscious of spatial experience.
