Grand Tour









Images assembled from slides taken by my grandad, Harold Philips in the 70s on his holidays. The the places he visited have since changed both physically and in our imagination through events that have taken place. The original slide film was re-assembled (in sandwiched pairs) to make a new ‘tour’, projected on a 35mm looping carousel in a slow animation. Horizons were matched to the gallery floor level, creating a theatrical experience of ‘being there’.  The work was shown at Howard Gardens Gallery, Cardiff.
