Falling drops of murder

2011 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My photography is inspired less by the documentation of people, places and things and more by the idea that the medium can be manipulating. An image taken out of its environment, framed and presented to the viewer is a completely different form than the object in its originally setting. There is no reference outside of the frame. The photograph endures because of its ability to deceive the viewer. It's not reality because the image in the frame is rarely literal. It's a slice of reality taken completely out context, not reality itself. In this series, I've sliced up reality to present an abstract depiction of an everyday object. Each section presents its own unique image that would be lost in more literal representation. Each image is framed separately in a 19 in x 22 black aluminum frame on a white background. The total space for the exhibit would be approximately 5 ft x 6 ft.
