This work is a manifesto for my approach to digital image-making. The photo was made with a laptop camera, physically moving the device through space, in the fields of California outside the famous Sea Ranch architectural project. This is an argument for the digital image as an act of mark-making. I am interested in disrupting the notion that photo-making is a static act; instead, it is a dynamic, full-body experience akin to moving pen across paper or brush across canvas.
This image also represents the through-line of ‘compressionism’ in my work—the idea that digital imaging technology, in its inadequacies and errors, can sometimes offer us impressions of reality that bring us closer to beauty and truth than images of high fidelity.
