Justin Shull

Justin Shull Work from Terrestrial Shrub Rover. ““From the time of our birth, humans have felt a primordial urge to explore — to blaze new trails, map new lands, and answer profound questions about ourselves and our universe.” – NASA In the spirit of NASA and its forthcoming 2020 lunar expeditions in preparation for colonizing […]

Liddy Scheffknecht

Liddy Scheffknecht Work from scaffolding. “All architectural elements except the scaffolding were removed from the photograph of a building under renovation. The result is an autonomous “drawing“, which suggests the form of the erased building. The scaffolding, normally a temporary urban structure, was retained whereas the building, a permanent urban structure, was eliminated.” - Liddy Scheffknecht

Sarah Gerats

Sarah Gerats Work from her oeuvre. There is shockingly little written about Sarah Gerats, though her work seems to pop up in quite a few places. Aesthetically, she fits easily in her native land (The Netherlands) and the great majority of her works follow the aesthetic and conceptual concerns of contemporary Dutch meta-photographic works. The […]

Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman

Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman Work from Geolocation: Tributes to the Data Stream. “Each morning we follow strangers through their Twitter updates, becoming intimately involved in their banal daily errands. We imagine ourselves as virtual flâneurs, exploring cities 140 characters at a time through the lives of others. Sometimes we follow these strangers for a […]

Liudvikas Buklys

Liudvikas Buklys Work from his oeuvre. “Let us say we have chosen to speak nothing but the truth. Immediately, there is a Freudian problem: should we just speak the truth as it is, or should we first take into account the circumstances and the audience to which we are speaking? There is a great difference. […]

Tomasz Dobiszewski

Tomasz Dobiszewski Work from his oeuvre. “Tomasz Dobiszewski’s artistic explorations are accompanied by a deep knowledge of classical photography, film and digital media.
