This project is the second installment within the wider this weather series. Valerie Sparks is interested in the potential of digital photography to bring together multiple locations and times, and how this new technology can be used to defy and contravene rules of perspective and visual logic. Digital technologies enable the creation of visual fields that include details existing on multiple planes beyond our natural vision, sampling and combining different seasons, times of the day and habitats to create seamless yet impossible environments. These images are not available to us in the physical spaces in which we live, but perhaps reflect our lived experience of the complex interconnections within global systems. this weather focuses specifically on the growing anxiety surrounding environmental change and erratic weather patterns - to which we are vulnerable - as well as the beauty, seductiveness and sense of danger of the sea.
