"I’m not the sentimental type, but... is an artistic exploration of the feeling of nostalgia. How does nostalgia affect us individually and what lies beneath the initial set of feelings? This audiovisual album visually dismantles and reframes footage of the Wirral, whilst spoken word, field recordings and synthesizers create a thought-provoking interpretation of the area. The work is a culmination of the practice-led research undertaken by audiovisual artist Mathew Lomas whilst studying Creative Practice at the prestigious Goldsmiths University.I’m not the sentimental type, but... explores the themes of existentialism, time and technology through the lens of nostalgia."
