With this series I aim to highlight the photograph as a destructive force that removes the nuance of reality through its own reductive gesture. This transformation is not only that which exists in reality into a flat object but also the subject itself. The subject is always to some extent abstracted. What is in fact a rather ugly mass in reality is transformed into something new. With the addition of the extensive digital manipulation that my work goes through the images take on strange digital gestures. I wanted to use this software in a very destructive way that highlights my works digital materiality. The added gestures become abstract digital waveforms within the analogue sine waves of the physical image.
