Since 1826 photography went through a rollercoaster of developments. The name itself derived from the Greek roots phōtos (light) and graphé (drawing). From “drawing with light” to “combining 0 and 1 digits” for forming an image, photography has been constantly redefining itself and here’s where my interest lies.
This work reflects on the current position and understanding of photography. Starting point is the medium itself and its characteristics. Through investigation of materials and techniques I’m translating basic photographic terms, (de)construction, reproduction and representation, into different forms by giving them physical qualities. When choosing a from of translation for these photographic terms, I’m reflecting on digital characteristics of dealing with images.
The reappearing subject are tiles. All were collected during the summer of 2016 on the shore of the Island Brac (Croatia). The act of collecting tiles was reenacting of a childhood game in which were searching for pieces of tiles.
