CELLULAR FLOW, I’ve been thinking…
Photographer and Visual Fine Artist, Yas Crawford describes her musings behind a new series ‘Cellular Flow_ I’ve been thinking’. The images describe an unsettling journey of chronic illness, its complexity, beauty and uncontrollable flow are delicately combined in an otherworldly biological space.
Crawford introduces the series ‘Cellular Flow, I’ve been thinking’. “Well, it seems I’ve always been thinking mainly about flow: flow of life, flow of cells, flow of energy, flow of time since I became ill, since others became ill. A long time ago. Maybe I’m just a thinker. Seems silly but isn’t flow what we need for continuity? After all some people’s flow is cut short, distorted, broken, redirected, or just interrupted”
Crawford let’s these musings seep into her images in the hope it resonates with others explaining “Abstraction provides a safe place for the audience to view the art. Read into it what they want or not” she states. “The images ambiguity foreshadows the future, complex but owning a place amongst the fluid and liquid environment”.
Using archival and digitally created cell images, Crawford adds illustration, light trails, and external space as a way of anchoring the science. “In the hope it will slow down, even for a second, but making no attempt to prevent it or break the pattern” Crawford explains.
“Allowing ourselves to travel with this flow brings us to a new future, one nourished by experience, knowledge and opportunities arising from the complexity, the chaos, the surreal”
