Droichead Arts Centre,
The exhibition title refers to snapshot photography, informal photographs that capture the events of everyday life, and also the card game “Snap” which is based on observing, with a quick reaction.
The images document particular experiences I encountered in the everyday. The concept is tied into the process of the encounter, with the potential for things to read in other ways; or revealed differently under different conditions.
A series of conceptual works were formed making connections between images by identifying patterns, sequences, and rhythms in the banal everyday subject matter. As a result, an absurd sense of order is projected onto the visual chaos of daily life.
Some of the photographs in the exhibition include text, which I have used to explain these encounters.
