Andrea Allan

Andrea Allan

What began as a personal journey for Andrea Allan into understanding how power stations work and contemplating their contribution to society has transformed into a series of images that aim to challenge our views on issues that deal with sustainable energy production. The alien-like structures coming out of the dark interior of the station seeks to reflect the way that society has pushed the artefact of the power station into the very periphery of its consciousness, and consequently devolved its understanding of a major source of its energy.

The absence of people in the series is an attempt to emphasise the ceaseless operation of the plant machinery and to highlight a continuing discourse between society's expectations from energy, our dependence on fossil fuels, and our need for a sustainable energy source for the future.

Andrea Allan has a BA (Hons) Photography, Video and Digital Imaging from Sunderland University and has exhibited widely in the UK.
