Working in photography, sound, painting and moving image Rachel Lancasters practice reflects upon the language of cinema and image making.
Lancaster filters and controls the information given to the viewer. Re-contextualised the potential reading of imagery and sounds becomes open ended and ambiguous. Isolated from the unknown events that proceed or follow, Lancaster presents irresolvable fragments that play upon the viewers desire to connect with a greater narrative.
Previous works used the process of digital photography and audio sampling to extract cinematic moments directly from found sources which were then translated into paintings,drawings and re-edited sound loops.

Lancaster's work examines the musicality of imagery and the use of the camera as a filter to set up a playful relationship with the viewer subverting potential expectations. She is concerned with investigating the ways in which imagery is constructed and received and how the space between these two acts can be manipulated. Lancaster's practice combines techniques from the world of film special effects, Foley sound, model making, theatre effects and photography in order to examine the interplay between reality and illusion.

At a time when digital media has a prevalent role in image making Lancaster examines how this can combine with lo-fi techniques and handmade effects to investigate the sense of wonder and mystery that can be created through the simple, economic manipulation of readily available household materials.
