James Paddock, Blinds + Film, 2017

"The 'Blinds' video installation is about the human condition and the boundaries or 'Shells' we form in life. Looking at the realities within the analogue and digital age, cultural/social network groupings and the urge to protect our habitats or environment/environments." The human habitat at concern here is the over-development of Southern England where James lives. One of the few remaining footpaths where James walked daily saw development to one side in 2017.
