My recent ‘Presence of Absence’ print series has been featured on the fantastic It’s Nice That website. I really like their description of the work:
Matt Lee’s Presence of Absence photographic series features a “decontextualised black shape” looming ominously over a Bangalore apartment block. The title of the work suggests the shape is some kind of infinite void of time and space, poised on the brink of causing unthinkable chaos and destruction. Or perhaps it’s a giant black obelisk serving as a memento mori constantly reminding us of our fleeting time on this mortal plane. Either way it’s very sinister, or I’m very paranoid.
‘Ink’ is a short film shot at one of Bangalore’s few remaining lithographic printers, by Smriti Mehra and myself. It currently features on SHORTSNONSTOP – a year-round online mobile film festival organised by the Canadian Film Centre.
Yesterday evening was the private view for our MA Digital Arts show at Camberwell College of Arts. Thank you to all those that came along.
