The ‘SenseCam’ Project was part of the final year of a two year residency based at Ysbyty Gwynedd, North Wales. The project involved working closely with Professor Linda Clare, (School of Psychology, University of Bangor) on a project that involved working with the research material captured by the Microsoft ‘SenseCam’.
Brett states: “Photographs taken with the ‘SenseCam’ are objective facts, moments that are captured but are not thought about in the same way as with other cameras. Memories on the other hand are selective, at times blurred and intensively subjective.”
Whilst viewing the footage Brett was drawn to the images that were more abstract, more aesthetic and ambiguous and decided to create two pieces of work in response to the images.
SenseCam 2 is more about the experience of managing Alzheimers, on a day to day basis, from the perspective of a loving couple. The viewer is taken on a journey through subdued dreamlike imagery penetrated by clear, determined, yet gentle words.
