Loading loading is a series of images stuck in the perpetual state of loading. The series is a diary of our time during the Covid Pandemic and will continue indefinitely until the world is back to ‘normal’ whenever that may be.
“There is an unsettling sense of apprehension and anxiety that I will never be able to shake each time I take a Covid-19 test. Waiting as the ART (Antigen Rapid Test) kit absorbs the mixed fluids to determine a result. In that state of waiting I am neither positive nor negative. ART is loading.”
“I know of no other time than the present but somewhere in the past I am walking back to the car, after watching the sun set on a beach in Dundee, Scotland, the world painted in blue. This was my last photograph taken overseas before returning home.”
“There used to be a cemetery here. And before that as far we know, it was a jungle. As white hoardings go up around the plot of land, I feel a little nostalgic for the quiet that used to define this sacred space. Concrete will pour and new homes will be built upon the ashes of yesterday.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, as we start our descent, please make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and all carry-on luggage is stowed underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead bins. Thank you.”
“In my mind I counted as I lit each candle. A single prayer for every one. One for those affected by natural disasters, one for those at war, one for those who can’t find a way out of darkness, one for those who never find happiness, one for those who are sick and dying, one for those who are asleep all their lives and one for those who can’t find peace. I pray for them.”
