‘Signs of Human Activity’ is an exploration of photography’s capacity to create pieces of fiction. Centred on the idea of found objects, the work examines items of clothing abandoned in secluded environments. The images are staged recreations of imagined scenes based on real experience, they exist entirely in a singular moment, without past or future, inviting the viewer to interact by inferring a personal, individual narrative for each piece. The images are constructed with a sense of theatricality and presented in a specific way which suggests that they exist outside of everyday experience, each item of clothing can be seen as a remnant of human activity and as a representation of a human form. The work is partly intended to lead a viewer to question the ‘realness’ of a photograph.
