Artist Jem Finer talks about Still, a new installation in YSP's Chapel where visitors are immersed in a large projection of 700 images, taken automatically in a forest by a solar-powered camera and constantly reordered through computer software.
Still captures a year in the Kent woodland through an ever changing sequence between dusk and dawn; an ebb and fl ow of time through which the viewer is as likely to witness the passing of a single day as the turning of the seasons of a full year.
A founding member of The Pogues, Jem Finer has established a highly respected multi-media art practice, which draws on his early training as a computer scientist. Finer is particularly known for the Artangel commission Longplayer, a self-selecting musical composition that began at midnight on 31 December 1999 and will continue for one thousand years until the next millennium.
