In Junko Theresa Mikuriyas History of Light, she states: the invention of photography is only the material manifestation of that which has always existed. This idea of drawing with light is something that occurred (however abstract or aspirationally) before the various apparatus and technologies which have been invented to achieve it. And it’s to these ideas that Material Manifestations most directly refers: to something beyond the accepted confines of photographic processes. The works are transformations of analogue chemigrams into three dimensional photographic objects using 3D editing software and printing. When considering the proliferation of image editing and enhancement techniques widely used and accepted these works represent an extreme but logical end point for the impact of technology on the medium.
