Work from Investigation in Microscopic Views.
“…In reexamining everyday objects and technologies, I make images to explore the uses of and potential histories that exist within the millions of personal and media images created daily. Evaluating the ways in which my experience is constructed, I investigate everyday uses and underlying structures of photographic images, process and re-present them as new images. Using photographic imagery as a way of interrogating ideas of representation and how meaning adheres to cultural objects, such as snapshots, home movies, advertisements and images of news events, I create both conceptual and visual abstraction, examining how authenticity, memory and nostalgia function. Considering the relationship of the viewer to the commonplace, the tangible and the unrepresentable, I investigate presentation and representation of self and viewpoint.” – Zach Nader
