My work deals with repetition, order versus chaos and the infinite versus the finite within the framework of my relationship with photography, while questioning the meaning of meaning and/or lack thereof.
The works are highly derivative in terms of contents, as I have given myself license to take and manipulate readymade and familiar images that are in the background of our daily lives, trapped in pixels. I print out these images and set them free while attaching them to constructs used by the medium of photography to be reborn in a different incarnation. The inverse takes place when I take a still image and instead of printing it, I hold the image prisoner within the frames of a digital screen. Employing various materials from photography (traditional black and white prints, video, studio equipments and digital prints) I transform the meaning of these images by using grids and repetition.
All of these works are under the clear control of (pardon the redundancy) control and order. A strong attention is paid to this human construct of the ‘grid’ and our desire to stray from nature in an attempt to make sense of the world in which we live. I futilely attempt to multiply the sky and to make it something finite by photographing the skies a set number of times. I print them on two-dimensional paper and then place it on a flat wall. I want this work to reflect our human flaw of hubris to think that we can alter the heavens and control nature. The result of this exercise is that we cannot.
