Control Order House: Edmund Clark Interviewed

Photoworks

October 2012

“I wanted to look in a different way to my Guantanamo work and to Still Life Killing Time, which were about looking for meaning in the (arrangement of) objects and spaces. After visiting the house, I knew it would be a challenge to represent it visually in the way I had worked before. For that reason, I wanted to concentrate on a type of video diary of the life of the controlled person in the house but without his presence, and to use photographs in a very unmediated, unedited, uncomposed way, and to use this imagery to reflect how we see/visualise space through forms associated with commercial and consumer choice, how we exercise control and choice in our houses and homes.”
