“As I was walking, I used the camera as an extension of my movement and I captured that movement sequentially. . . trying to to sort of photographically consume things around me in pieces.” Rebeca Bollinger, intrigued by the dichotomy of ordered databases and random info on the web, produced fields (2001) in response to these two seemingly opposing sets of information. The result is a visual diary of sorts. A constant feed of images from her life in the last two years as a means to make sense of her surroundings.
Cool, you say – well – check out the artist’s reflections about the way digital info and data features in her work on Henry ArtCasts. She also talks about her current exhibit showing right here in the Henry mezzanine until 11 November.
