"A Shadow, A Trace, Impossible Is Nothing"

Friday, March 05 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Salon F

Flores Ansell's work explores the "in between" state of photography
and its technology, where the photograph becomes a fading
object. The object of a photograph is sometimes absent with
digital imagery, only existing in the computer as light. Despite
the seductive endless qualities of Photoshop, she missed the
multi-stepped process of the photographic object that now gets
lost in the new light box of digital photography. In her work, she
cuts photographic film into a thousand pieces. The repetition
ensures the image will be seen as an object as it casts a shadow
and a trace of an original.
