Off the Point by Simon Ledson


My practice envelops multiple fields of visual expression. The main themes that I focus on deal with ideas surrounding perception and distortion of vision regarding constants, such as data, time and space. I use materials to question our understanding of what we are looking at.
Time/Tide Scapes: This body of work is experimenting with visualising data, information within surf culture. By focusing on the connections that make information playful, facts and ideas that interconnect visually. An observational study on the understanding of form, light, space, these are the elements that influence my Time/Tide Scapes.
This work is a series of experiments working with data exploring the information of waves and tides: their timing, changes and direction and finding a way of logging their actions. I find these are some of my inspirations. I’m interested in our understanding of what we are looking at and question both the thing itself and the image of the thing. Vision can be the result of some form of unconscious reference, a matter of making assumptions and drawing conclusions based on previous experiences. These works are an ongoing enquiry into the relationship of what I see, a mere reflection of light on a surface. It’s not so much the location it’s more the time and data capturing the correct atmosphere.
The time in-between night and day we call it nautical dawn when the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon, the day starts.
