Space Port Alpha (2010)

Tilt-shift / desktop diorama of spaceport alpha (second life) as desktop background. Part of New Work.

New Work represents a shift away from the paradigm of the photograph as mechanical reproduction and serves an acknowledgement of the image-maker as the mediator of sight. These works are a continuation of ongoing research / meta-photographic critique concerning the visual and conceptual processes of image production and perception. As an exploration of visual language and process, this work examines how we see, what merits being seen, and how images function in contemporary visual culture where the photograph frequently functions not as an object, but as a conceptually transparent representation of a reproduced reality. New Work aims to address not only the photograph as object, but also to acknowledge process and context as integral components to comprehension.
