About the work

People are constantly searching for destinations. The two sign posts of WAYFINDER (there + back) are based on street sign posts you would typically see in a large city. However, rather than geographical locations, the signs depict 20 words that are in the realm of ‘the emotional landscape’. REASON, REFLECTION, REVEAL, REDEMPTION, RECKONING. Viewers of this work are encouraged to round out the equation by making personal associations from their own memories or experiences.


Derek Besant RCA works with image and text in ways that operate on how the brain "sees".

* The caliber of work presented at Strand Ephemera 2019 was at such high standard that the judges wished to name a Highly Commended, along with the major award winner.
