Glass, colored gels, LED, timelapse
Author: The practice of collecting and repurposing a wide range of material objects to make single shutter exposure images emerged after years of working in various art forms—ceramics, video, and photography. Using shattered glass, torn handmade paper, wires, foam, and even water to re-fashion a unique view of each object into abstract, colorful, and deceptively simple photographs. The images, with their textured patterns and layers, reinterpret landscapes and architecture through the lens of the DSLR camera. The fixation with the moment in which light hits the camera’s sensor and is transformed into a digital image inspired the name of the studio, Strike the Sensor. Influenced by childhood in Southern California and a lifelong love of music, often the images fit into square photographs, an homage to the thousands of album covers that defined pivotal life moments over the years.
