James Richard’s work with Leslie Thornton has been concerned with specific psychic and temporal states, rushes of interconnectedness and scientific wonder, as well as a sense of ecological dread and paranoia. The elements of their work have been generated from the third mind of collaboration, a channelling of and at times conscious unsettling of each other’s sensitivities. When the radiographic machine first appears in Mann’s Magic Mountain it was thought to be a magical instrument that could render the body (and soul) transparent. In Richard’s work radiography retains this sense of a vision that travels through objects, and makes apparent a magical, sinister and inverted reality.
