Charles Lindsay likens his multimedia practice to that of a scientist, saying it “involves exploration, observation and imagination. But I hope to provoke questions as opposed to provide answers.” Lindsay, who received his education in geology, began his artistic career as a travelling documentary photographer; his most famous projects took him to Greenland, Indonesia, and the Arctic Circle. He is also well known for creating his own cameraless photographic process, involving spreading a carbon-based emulsion directly onto the photographic negatives. He often scans and manipulates these images, or uses them to create animations as part of multi-sensory installations. Lindsay has also been known to create kinetic sculptures from repurposed or discarded NASA equipment.
