In the Buddhist tradition, Hungry Ghosts are the spirits of greedy humans, who in the afterlife are forced to walk the earth with tiny mouths and huge empty stomachs forever unable to satisfy their desires. Barratt saw the flowering of a thousand skyscrapers across Asian city skylines as the new Hungry Ghosts, manufacturing endless desire which can never be fulfilled. He explores this modern manifestation of the ancient tradition in his series of digitally remixed photographs of the Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, New York & London skylines. Rich in color and grand in scale, the work shows the cityscape in a new light.
The dance between the present and the ancient is the subject of the Hungry Ghost series.
Barratt’s other works include
Karito premiered at the United Nations (2008)
Medicino - with Faiyaz Jafri - Rome (2010)
