Jem Raid self portrait figurative video artist

My intention with this video is to show work that is androgynous, anonymous and cuts across the erroneously perceived divides that many feel separate us.
I thought of the countryside I live near to, the scrap yards, industrial estates and industrial areas also near to me. I like to make images in these locations and in this video I combine the two with interlocking montages. I always find it surprising that I can get such a range of colour from the most mundane objects I find scattered about and abandoned. The sound is one of YouTubes free to use tracks that I remixed myself using the free program Audacity.

It is four minutes fifty five seconds long and in an edition of three with two artists proofs and will be shipped in a hand crafted case.

Number one of three for sale at thirty US dollars.
