More than 7,500 fragments colour were hand cut from adverts which appeared in national newspapers over the period of a year. They have been compiled and remediated into digital stills, which are sequenced chronologically and presented as a digital animation on Glasgow City Screen.
Mead’s practice articulates the presence of different temporal experiences by exploring the dynamics of uncertainty and transition created in the collapsing boundaries between the real and the virtual. He produces durational installations along with digital video-based work that contain compressed information via non-linear narratives, repetitive structures and irrational cuts allowing moments, histories and locations to entangle and intersect in the attempt to create forms of time travel.
