Katie Longley

London based photographic artist Katie Longley explores themes of time and memory. Taking the human condition as her subject, the artist is drawn to scenarios and spaces where time is interrupted and the chronological perception of photography is manipulated.

Waiting Room

Don’t think about it.

So bright.
Wrong, not natural.
Why are the walls yellow?
Or green.
Pastel plastered everywhere.
Yet not neutral.

Don’t think about it

The hospital is a highly charged psychological space. One must relinquish control of the passage of time to the waiting room. Emotion is projected within, experience and memory colouring the bricks and mortar. The individual is compelled to reject the present moment and detach the consciousness in the timeless duration of imagination.
