Ian’s work aims to reinterpret these manmade structures as monuments placed within the landscape. These structures in turn then become monuments of their time. The prints serve as a visual historical document and record. The structures in studies are devoid of people and the architectural scale can no longer be based on the physical measurement of the human body.
Ian has a long standing fascination with technology and architectural forms, these have included structures within industry, agriculture, science and the military. The work now aims to become a visual historical document and record of places that he has visited. These in the past have included Goonhilly Earth station, The Lovell Telescope, Cheshire Maunsell sea Forts in the Thames estuary and the Acoustic Sound Mirrors on the south Kent coast.
