Flame is an audiovisual work released as part of Frame, a collection of digital editions by Philip Clemo. The works in the collection were produced in diverse contexts and locations, often in close proximity to powerful forces, and offer insight into Clemo’s creative processes and techniques. The Frame collection considers how particular environments, forces and natural phenomena are recorded, framed and processed, and questions the nature of abstraction versus realism, juxtaposing macro with micro, magnification against distance. The source material for Flame is footage of a butane gas explosion.
