Darren Almond - Video Tape (Large)
Focusing on how time’s passing is articulated through the language of numbers, Darren Almond’s series of prints Digital Red, Blue, Yellow and Green (2014) refers to the idea that numbers are the only ‘true common language’.
Depicting fragmented digits in a utilitarian font, like those found in urban environments – typical of transport hubs and their associated signage – the compositions use partial forms which appear to scroll up and down on the surface of the paper, as if a flip-clock has been caught mid-movement.
As a larger work related to the series, Video Tape (Large) (2014) features an abundant distribution of numbers in blue, green and red with each figure fragmented.
The colours used in these prints are taken from Tibetan prayer flags and represent the elements, or Five Pure Lights, from the Dzogchen tradition of Bon and Tibetan Buddhism. Buddhist thought and practice, particularly that of Tibet and Japan, has been an important point of reference for Almond over the past decade.
