Douglas Huebler, contact sheet: 'Oxford Street 1975' (detail)

I really enjoy a sense of mapping and recording throughout the contact sheet, and a strong sense of narrative emerging within it. The fact that the imagery is arranged in a grid creates a sensation of constant surveillance and control. Different colour schemes, such as sepia, b/w and turquoise portray a sense of chance and accident as well as suggest past and history. 

I find it a powerful tool to record information chronologically and in a grid because it has a clear, direct narrative and amplifies consciousness.
