e. brady robinson: shift (2007)

E. Brady Robinson: Shift curated by Chan Chao September 7 - October 6, 2007 FLASHPOINT, 916 G. St., NW Washington, DC 20001

Shift is an installation of color photographs by E. Brady Robinson, organized by photographer and curator Chan Chao. Shift represents the culmination of over two years of Robinson’s work and travels.

The installation is a mapping of geography encountered and time lived as the artist drifts from landscape to landscape both in her home country and abroad. ...

E. Brady Robinson: Shift curated by Chan Chao September 7 - October 6, 2007 FLASHPOINT, 916 G. St., NW Washington, DC 20001

Shift is an installation of color photographs by E. Brady Robinson, organized by photographer and curator Chan Chao. Shift represents the culmination of over two years of Robinson’s work and travels.

Robinson is a photographer who exploits the tradition of the “snapshot” to examine social and cultural environments. Her work is informed by the technology of instant mobile image capture, as well as travel and landscape photography. She offers viewers multiple points of view and cross-cultural references while evoking the split second of time during which one experiences fleeting frames of existence from the window seat of a car, train or airplane.

The installation is a mapping of geography encountered and time lived as the artist drifts from landscape to landscape both in her home country and abroad. Locations include both Europe and North America.

In organizing this exhibition, Chao brings careful editing and purposeful juxtapositions. In Shift, Robinson creates new formal and conceptual relationships between disparate images through scale and sequence to create a sense of rhythm and movement that leads viewers through the series of images. The installation is a deliberate re-contextualization of sequential shots and describes a territory where the social/cultural landscape, personal experience and pure aesthetics meet.
