In this exhibition, Michael Pemberton suggests we each have a personal Human Atmosphere. An ether where we truly exist, unseen by the naked eye but as real and critical to self as anything physical or tangible.
Pemberton investigated how our human atmosphere not only creates us but how we in-turn, are its creators. A symbiotic flow of energy masquerading as thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Like planetary atmospheres and climates, all is interdependent and in flux that results in harmony or chaos, peace or violence.
'If I'm attempting anything other than to make an image, it's to try and peel back the veneer of reality'
