‘My works of meticulously created installations & captured sequences blur the boundaries between two & three dimensions. I try to present a colourful world where real life, narrative, light & shadow connect & collide.’
Boyd’s work brings attention to the element of time in holographic images. He creates holograms from sequences of photographic footage that capture action within the hologram. Boyd photographs every-day events with a ‘hand-held’ vernacular style placing the viewer as bystander within the scene. His work with pulse laser hologram recording takes a very different approach. Here the narrative is told through objects, often worn by the subject in meticulously constructed fictitious scenes.
