May 2023 - Stone Tape Theory


Black and white photographs taken by Megan Kennedy articulate an abstracted landscape taken through a graffitied glass bus stop panel. The effect is moody, shadowy and whimsical abstraction of the landscape and urban landscape.

Bus shelter veiled in aphotic glass clouded by weather and personage. Some people say that the essence of a ghost is manifested through the interior playback of old structures, but the living is echoed too, recorded here in mark-making events that resist or otherwise intervene on the landscape and the surrounding suburbs.


Photography has long been suggested as a supernatural tool for photographing ghosts - dating back to the 19th century. These spiritous markings on the bus stop may be removed or replaced, their original makers scatted long ago. However, their photographic documentation endures.
