Work from his oeuvre.

“This work begins with the realization that photography now refers to and derives from both physical and virtual environments.

Consider deconstructing photography to its essential components, namely

1.  the photographable

2.  the photographer

3.  the photograph

and re-applying them to the Internet “image-world” (as experienced via personal computer + monitor + screen shot).

Compressing environment, camera, and image   into a singular apparatus and experience is an unconventional act.

Although I have increased accessibility and mobility to a variety of virtual locations, my body becomes increasingly isolated in a  order to cope with the overwhelming desire to be simultaneously positioned here and elsewhere.

The achievement and disappointment of both photography and the Internet are due to the reliance upon the elsewhere.” – Jesse Morgan Barnett
