Photography is the core of my artwork. It is my medium of choice, my means of expression, but more importantly, photography (as technique, medium, and act) and the photograph (as product and object), are the subject matter and content of my work.
Our world has undergone a major perceptual paradigm shift in recent years. The change from an analog to a digital environment has changed in the way we look at and organize our individual space, its physicality, its accessibility, and its material aspects. I work in a digital culture and respond to it, and technology represents for me not just a means but also the subject of exploration. In my latest works I'm choosing to go back to working with physical materials which raises interesting fundamental questions about essentiality, history, and existence. My work examines the values of photography, whether the photographs are about architectural structures, plates, or flowers; I have employed these as tools in my reflections on photography.
Throughout my process I seek to explore the basic, familiar principles of photography – its ability to preserve, to mediate, and to create – but more importantly is looking at how these principles affect our perceptions, of how elements may be represented: studying the object which "has been there" through its representation, looking at a copy instead of the original, watching a performance instead of living the experience.
