Artist Statement

Has photography become so ubiquitous, and its manipulation so unanimously accepted that we have lost all bearing on its legitimacy and, ultimately, on reality itself? Matching Socks explores this notion by embracing the automated manipulation of digital images. The project comprises Photoshop software scripts that swap colors and/or use other types of image transforms to carry out mundane tasks. In this schema, photography is used to do things rather than just document them (it itself acts as a task worker). This act is meant to question our belief structures in contemporary culture’s increasingly convincing digital reality.
