White Light Encounters, 2017, Ink Jet Prints, 30 X 40 inches each
The impulse of White Light Encounters is to address the new relationships between images and photography which are created through information technologies. It stands as a physical gesture turned into a technological response.
The movement of the photographs during the process of the scan addresses how intent can lead to malfunction, thus revealing the abstraction of information and questioning our vision of it.
By transforming vernacular photographs into distorted scans, the work questions the way images are mediated and rendered by such technologies. It is a conversation between the physicality of the photographic object and its digital rendering, between light and its interpretation as information.
