When I began this piece I was examining the area around the abandoned Visteon factory in Ladybrook, West Belfast.
The plant supplied parts to Ford for manufacturing and was closed under suspicious circumstances.
During the research of the factory I noticed there was a lot of linear qualities around, the various types of fence, the curb, the gate, barbed wire. I started to think about the area in a linear way and decided to use a scanner to record the area.
The scanner records across the area slowly on a horizontal plane and allows for distortions in the subject (e.g. moving blades of grass).
