Ambiguous by nature

This series of work about visual judgement came about through a collaboration through the Arts Council and a Histopathologist Dr Robert Marshall in an artist residency through the Postgraduate Education Centre, Royal Cornwall Hospital Truro.

There is clear recognition of something, but we don't know quite what it is;"We wouldn't know what we were looking at here, but it is eerily like collagen'. Histopathologists use a variety of stains for particular tissue types or cell structures and this distinguishes foreground information from back ground 'noise'- non- pathological material that is discounted in clinical diagnosis.

These images became like spoof electron microscopy images usually seen in large coffee table books.
