DIS / location

DIS / location ‘The Form of the River’ Graphic Collage, June 2012.

DIS / location Comprises of:

Philip Cheater

Sophie Victoria Elliott

This collaboration seeks to engage in a dialogue. Sophie is from Wales but currently lives in England and Phil is from England currently living in Wales. With this they both share an understanding of re-location, travel and distance from ‘home’.

This particular piece is in response to Sophie’s current residency for the Cardiff Cycle Festival. Both Phil and Sophie use cycling as a key mode of transport. By combining photographs on their travels, found images of the locations from the past, landscape references to contours, signage found en-route and colours derived from those journeys only they aim to communicate dislocation from their homeland by discovering the nuances of their new homes.
