‘Throwing Caution’, Chris Wainwright
We commissioned Chris Wainwright in 1996 for a series of site specific works for Heathrow Airport Terminal 4. Wainwright works primarily through photography and video as a means of addressing issues related to light and energy, both natural and artificial, in urban and rural environments. The work is made as a direct response to ‘place’ and is often the result of an intervention, a temporary action or construction made for the camera as a unique form of witness for the recording of light.
For Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, Wainwright produced a series of photographic studies entitled ‘Throwing Caution’ and a pair of images entitled ‘The Lower Lake’ which explore making marks with light within the Scottish landscape.
We commissioned ‘Throwing Caution’ and ‘The Lower Lake’ as part of the BAA Art Programme in 1996.
