My recent practice has been focused on ‘play’ as an approach to visual research. This means I have spent time making imagery within a framework created by the inherent restrictions of a material process in combination with a number of self-imposed parameters. For example, exploring image making using just the limited marks available when using a typewriter and being restricted to a limited number of strokes. These contexts balance the potentially infinite scope of images you could make with limitations that encourage creative thinking and play. These explorations led me to develop a number of tools for image making including the postcard featured here and an interactive coded web-tool for making images like the one also pictured here.
