In Liquid Crystal Displays Blackmore has been photographing broken Liquid Crystal Display Screens from digital devices such as laptops, phones and cameras; technologies that play a large part in our modern daily routines. These digital forms have almost completely replaced analogue technology in industry and are fast replacing analogue forms in photographic art. Produced using solely traditional photographic equipment, Blackmore’s work catalogues and questions the place of obsolete technology in art and contemporary life.

Originally from Dublin, David Blackmore graduated from The University of Westminster in 2005. Currently he is based in London, whilst working part time as a senior lecturer at the University College for the Creative Arts, Farnham, Surrey.
