Paul Laidler appears to be trapped in the 1980’s or more specifically the era’s association with ‘new’ technology as seen through media such as film and television. Subsequently he has a profound curiosity with the mediated image where its fictional presence becomes a semi tangible component in the resulting artefact. Whilst this initiates the play between fact and fiction there is an unashamed alliance with the inner geek.
