I've recently joined TADA, an agency run by Steve Fletcher (Carroll/ Fletcher), that supports cross disciplinary artists whose work does not fit naturally within the commercial gallery world
It seems everything I'm doing lately involves learning new skills. This is a particle test, using objects and environmental lighting from Chasing Demons in the Night, and to be developed into a new image based series.
Currently looking into ways to more clearly display interior scenes I've been building.

PHOTOWORLD MAGAZINE CHINA
Lucy Soutter has recently included my work in a new article for Photoworld Magazine 'Expanded Photography: Persistence of the Photographic', below is an excerpt...
Dominic Hawgood uses computer-generated imagery to test the limits of what we perceive to be real in photography. This image is a computer-generated rendering of an exhibition rather than an actual photograph, a strategy that allows the artist to imaginatively project what an ideal exhibition would look like, and in practical terms to solve curatorial problems, and to circulate his work in its ideal form. Some of the images within the rendered exhibition show objects that have been computer generated rather than photographed. Showing scenes and objects associated with exorcisms at African pentacostal churches around London, the images reflect on the extremes of human experience and what is felt as authentic or real. The form the work takes is highly mediated via various digital processes, yet the investigation remains close to questions about the possibilities and purpose of photography in relation to human truth.
Dr Lucy Soutter is an artist, critic and art historian. She is Senior Tutor in the Department of Critical and Historical Studies Humanities at the Royal College of Art and is the author of Why Art Photography? (London: Routledge, 2013

THESIS: THE THERAPEUTIC REAL
The thesis was awarded a distinction and can be downloaded from the following LINK. It identifies a recent cultural phenomenon: literary and filmic re-enactments of real-life events that produce in their participants a kind of reality of the moment, thereby generating a particular sense of self aware authenticity for the viewer.
