Tele.(Gram) : Frequencies of the Forest
Essays cite the context of the exhibition, a description of Eretza demonstrates the cold tone of technology in contrast to the magic of lived experience, a reminder of how much we can learn just by being outside. The image essays begin with photos of plants by the river using only light reflected from the water to distort and blur. It evolves into a search for textures within the surface materials of the landscape.
