Photographic prints on tracing paper and glass (ED. 1)
20 x 60 cm / 8 x 24 inches
I have always seen myself as an image maker. My work evolves from pure photography to objects and movies, out of necessity.
Lately I have been focused on exploring the idea that photography is not a question of color or form, but a matter of plane/surface.
Each photograph will generate an image, a two-dimensional representation. This image is to be printed, viewed or projected on a surface, not necessarily a flat one. I want to explore this photographic support with my work, its variations and impacts on how we perceive a particular image. I talk about a three-dimensional experience that goes beyond what is initially represented.
Sometimes, building the perfect photographic image and displaying it on the wall is no longer sufficient. But using this image or its fractions to build something else, to interact with people, to encourage the observer to move around it and to think beyond what is being depicted, really interests me now.
On ZEN photo-object I have photographed crumpled paper, printed those photographs and crumpled the prints between glass planes into a close circuit.
ZEN looks calm, flat and under control - from the surface - but it holds an enormous amount of effort and work. What individuals go through to reach zen state is utterly unseen.
