Experiments in Reductive Video

This body of work entitled “Reductive Video” borrows the choice to depict changes in movement (either as individual frames or wholly contained in a single image) and applies it to the technical rendering of images… (read the full project statement)

Mirror Minus employs visual analysis of live video footage; changes in color are continuously rendered on a pixel-by-pixel basis to create a projection, which re-presents, mirrors, and documents the participants’ impacts upon the space.

For Love represents the reduction of a video into a single print. Changes in motion and movement are layered to create impressions of these on-screen activities. The source material for this exploration was appropriated from online amateur pornographic video-sharing websites.

After Muybridge, After Marey is an homage to the work of Eadweard Muybridge, Étienne-Jules Marey, and Thomas Eakins, bringing their ideas into the 21st century by highlighting the changes in motion and movement as experienced and recorded by technology.

Pixel-Lapse

Pixel-Lapse combines the temporal nature of long exposure photography and the precise organization of the digital matrix, creating an image one pixel at a time.

Curatorial Projects

Hughes Remix

The re-presentation of archival images in part or as a whole has become a standard in contemporary photographic practice. Methods are as varied as the artists themselves from Rauschenberg’s inclusion of media images in his prints to Levine’s re-appropriation of FSA photographs and from Fontcuberta’s insertion of himself into archival images to Umbrico’s excising of images from the collective archive.

In conjunction with the 2014 SPE National Conference theme “Collaborative Exchanges: Photography in Dialogue”, The Special Collections Department of the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery and the Department of Visual Arts, at UMBC offered the images of the Hughes Company Glass Negatives Collection for reinterpretation and reinvention.

Construction: 1922 / 2011 - created with images from the Hughes Collection, University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

In the tradition of the palimpsest, those pieces of parchment and vellum (scraped clean for reuse) promise that something once existed beneath its contemporary surface. Yet, only through technological investigation is that promise realized. Palimpsest asks its viewers to consider the scriptio inferior (the sub-text or in this case, perhaps, the imago inferior—the sub-image) of the black and white graphic applied to the stripped-clean surface of an original artwork.
