Physis presents eight digitally constructed photographic images and one video installation that were created through mixing and sampling a variety of representations of built environments, visual languages and processes. What results from this image compositing are ambiguous, dreamlike, in-between spaces that mine the relationship between nature and contemporary culture. Through the creation of poetic, ambiguous images viewers are able to form their own response to the individual images and the exhibition as whole. My approach of creating an experience that is more poetic than didactic was born out of a response to contemporary and historical photographs and writings, and to the directness found in images belonging to contemporary media culture. While Physis does allow for multiple interpretations, for me, this body of work references ideas of interconnectedness, transmission and the redefinition of space through connections between studio processes, the body, the digital and the visual.
