As part of an ongoing body of lens-based work relating to landscape, Simmons has made new work, titled Clearing, specifically for the FORMAT17 festival, based around the theme ‘HABITAT’. He has created a large, four-sided back-lit photographic installation. Clearing will consist of four images of a forest clearing, each taken at 90° from the adjoining image, in order to create a 360° audience experience. This is to be the sole work installed in St Weburghs's chapel. Simmons examines the connection we have with our surroundings, exploring the themes that link our lives with the natural world, prompting us to re-engage with it. The photographic detail and scale of the prints are crucial factors in encouraging viewers to become immersed in the images as they move around the darkened room.
