London, England, United Kingdom

Kaerlud #1

Mick Watson's work is concerned with shared experiences, community and how memory and perception are altered by colour.

Kaerlud #1 is the result of a London-wide project where strangers were asked to submit digital pictures of their everyday experiences of the city. The resulting images ranged from the mundane - train carriages, TV sets - to the scenic - The Shard and South Bank - and documented the varied daily routines of the city's inhabitants. The images were then broken down into their composite colours to provide an abstract and almost painterly colour experience reflecting life in a diverse city.

The large blocks of colour reference the pixels that are part of the fabric of life in the modern age with the wider-world and life events being increasingly viewed through phones and tablets. The flickering images suggest a commuter-like journey around London through the pixelated eyes of a cast of strangers.
