Megalopolis

The urban spaces of Lagos provide the raw materials for the transfigurations in “Megalopolis”.
Using techniques of long and mixed exposures to create images that function like micro-movies – the pieces present inherently static images with a layer of dynamism with an embedded notion of movement. They are assembled multiple exposures of photographs to create futuristic hyper realities that are almost dream like in nature. Appearing like a hectic dystopian landscape they however, manifest a calm contentment at the same time. The repeated imagery of buildings, cars and roadways echo the constant activity in the city, appearing both disordered and intriguing. The images translate actions of the city’s inhabitants and highlight spectacles of the unceasing urban transitions that is the City of Lagos.

FINISH: DIASEC mounting –
Diasec is a method of preservation of photographic images. The mounting process uses no glue instead it utilises a special liquid chemical to create adhesion between the three components in the composite. The face of the image adheres chemically to the back of a transparent Plexiglas and the image back to a rigid aluminum sheet. The process ensures the absence of dust particles or air bubbles with no traces of glue. The front face of the plexiglas filters ultraviolet light and avoids discoloration of the image. The final artwork is a guaranteed Museum quality finish with image longevity of over 70 years.
