Each of us is a curator to the gallery we own on social media. We edit, frame and add filters to images; we can spend more time processing an image of our life than actually living our life.
Cameras and screens serve as portals into the experiences of those around us. We have the ability to visually document and quickly disseminate images and video. These devices we use to document interrupt our physical interaction with artwork; we focus on images of art rather than the art itself.
When artwork is photographed, it is evidence of the viewer’s engagement with it, yet the focus is often shifted to favor the device needed to process and document. It’s in this particular shift of interaction that this series of work is created for. Here, this otherwise disruptive relationship is integral to the experience: the camera flash illuminates the pieces, revealing the artwork.
