Description Im in a bit of a TTV mood this week. Must be feeling nostalgic with the year about to endA few days ago, someone asked what did we do without mobile phones?. This sparked a long discussion about what we did without all the technology of today. I think its funny that we used to just turn up to meet people at a certain place, and just wait till they arrived, late or not. Somehow it always worked, no one got left behind, and everyone always showed up!What did we do before the digital age? We managed, whatever it was. I used to love creating my mix tapes of the radios nightly top 20, or taping video clips on a Saturday morning.I do love how far we have come technologically, the progress we have made in the last 20 years is astounding. Im in no way anti progression. Its healthy and good, but its what we leave behind sometimes that I miss.Long live the walkman! :)
Andrew Paranavitana, Melbourne Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
There is one general thing to remember with photographic art: Look Up. You miss so much at eye level only.
