Notes on a conception of a film is a photographic installation that derives from a personal archive of snapshots collected in Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Belgium, UK, Germany, France, Holland, Spain, Mauritius, Canada and USA. The photographed spaces are presented with no identification as to the specific locations they were taken or any chronology. The combination of text and drawing infuse the photographs with emotional and psychological allusions.

Referencing both the filmic frame and a story- board and blending narrative and documentary, the notes explore narrative moments and attempt to construct the landscape of a personal geography. The hand-tinted process brings to mind the childlike activity of colouring books, as an attempt to make sense of space, colour, architecture and perspective, but can ultimately be read as the artist’s attempt to question representation and to situate the photographed spaces in one’s personal imagery.
