A solo exhibition of photographic prints and video works
MAY 8 - JUNE 6, 2021
A series of prints, photocopies of anachronistic objects: yesterday’s computer and TV screens. Destined to become landfill before they enter the market, a future architecture of our built environment. “Blueprint,” the word initially referred to Prussian blue copies of architectural plans made with the cyanotype process. Environment and obsolescence connect in troubling ways.
Video recordings of Foucault’s Pendulums, their frames rearranged according to the position of the pendulum rather than chronological time, creating a simultaneous appearance of continuity and fragmentation. Captured using online IP cameras, these objects attest to a particular place, their movement fixed to a position on the earth’s surface. Nonetheless, their images unhinged and transmitted to anywhere with a connection to the internet, an exemplary but common aspect of the online photographic image.
