Distortions- Metal steps down to the Thames river
DESCRIPTIONThe theme of the Distortions series was borrowed from the avant-garde series of photographs by André Kertész under the same title, in which he experimented with optical mirrors.
During the research work, consisting in removing photographs from the objectivity of the registered space, digital objects were created, constituting an open work. Thanks to this, each case of reception can be a new creation.
Thanks to changes in the wave generator, it synthesizes the recorded reality into vibrating colorful traces. The distortion of photography frees itself from the original message, the initial aim of which was to capture the uniqueness of the moment with a non-objective camera.
The deconstruction of the structure of photographs and their re-decoding according to new rules is expanded with titles describing the photographed object or place. The abandoned content relating to the recorded image of reality fully receives a new form of communication.
The fragmented fragments of objects can build a new message from the viewer's vision. I am trying to create a digital color puzzle that should give perceptual pleasure. Receiving, interpreting and re-creating the illusion of the real world in the recipient's mind is the goal of my activities.
I don't want to decide which elements of the image the viewer should look at. There is no single choice of looking. Images allow you to discover yourself and decide how to decrypt them. I would like mind and matter to define the territory through which the recipient will move. The Distortions cycle is a process of working with visuality that involves analyzing, processing, and re-coding. My question is: can the recipient re-integrate the message, activating the newly entrenched method of decryption and reception?
