About the Artists
During his three years on the BA Photography programme at University of Northampton, Nigel Fovargue’s main areas of research have been connected with the environment, climate change and human interaction with the planet, culminating in his final project, “Anthropocene” which highlights, through a mixed media approach, the scars and marks that humankind is making on the planet, and that will have an impact long after humans are no longer present. Fovargue’s two previous projects “Evidence” and “Encroachment” also investigated these themes. His work has developed from initially being purely photographic to screen-printing, bookmaking, video projection and mixed-mixed installation.
“Discipline is the practice of limitation for the purpose of honing abilities. The word itself has been colloquialised by artists to describe the practices and mediums they adopt for their work. I have taken it upon myself to limit my photography by employing the use of a camera that shoots 640x480px onto 3.5 inch floppy disks as a disciplinary measure to exercise my skills to produce high quality photographs in spite of the lower fidelity.” – Niall Redmond
