Projected Light

September 2017

Created in 2012, Projected Light is a series of photographic prints that explore how we look at screens.

Playing on John Szarkowski’s notion of the photograph as either a mirror (that reflects our worldview) or a window (a lens through which we see the world), this series presents the screen as having similar qualities.

The prints were created by exposing black & white photographic paper with a negative image through a digital projector, giving each print the functional qualities of a screen. Each image is a still from known media, meta pictures that refer to themes often associated with photographs and screens; light, memory, windows/mirrors, reality, projection and truth.
