idioms from traditional print photography and digital imaging and artisan-designed furniture meet in this inventive handcrafted aluminum table.
this work reflects an autobiographical narrative, it is a view of the artist’s hometown, taken by a drone, the image was found on the internet and manipulated by the artist to resemble a cyanotype print, an embodiment of a blueprint, a hallmark of memory.
the handcrafted work is made when a digital negative is inserted between two pieces of glass and cleverly revisits the principles of the photographic enlarger.
the magic of this kinetic piece happens when a beam of light penetrates the digital negative, projecting a blurred ghostly image within the casted frame of the shadow.
