Photography (MA)

Can the uncertainty and fluctuation of the image, that happens during the transformation, reproduction and viewing process of the photograph in the digital age, be visualised? 

A photographic image is more than a pictorial representation, but a spectacle containing numerous layers of information, which is captured, shared, and reproduced constantly. In a sense, the image itself has become not only a document of moments of our lives, but a tool that can shape behaviours and perceptions, and eventually create new realities.

In my work, the image becomes an extension of the human body, as the image‚Äôs life cycle never ends and is always in flux, the relationship between myself and the image is neither fixed nor static, but chaotic, confusing, overwhelming. Tangible, fragmented, destroyed and multilayered images are inserted into experimental environments to create a fluid image experience.
