Working from concepts explored in the Digital Build series, Mediated Images takes the superimposed still image and reduces its form to high contrast, graphically striking black-and-white forms which verge on pure abstraction. The process dissects the "reality" of the original image to create new fictional departures.
The conventions of traditional photography and image-making, and the daily saturation of images, constitute a haze through which it is difficult to see clearly. The viewer no longer sees except through the filter of predefined conventions. As a result, the information or story of the original photograph or image no longer serves to communicate or articulate referentially meaningful statements. Mediated Images questions photography and image-making differently, in other terms, by creating new forms of identity and perception through its change in context.
