If everyone has unadulterated access to a camera, are we all photographers? Or is no-one? Many contemporary image makers find themselves grappling with this issue and are often forced to concieve new image making techniques. In Silico represents an increasing ambivalence towards the notion of ‘taking’ photographs; Shifting instead towards making images, rather than documenting the existing. The process, stripped back and scrutinised, allows photography’s innate characteristics to be visualised through a post-photographic format. Using novel production methods in conjunction with adhering to real-world properties of light presents a unique physicality within the images. The ambiguous and uncertain allure of the work serves to reflect the modern image making process; constantly striving for innovation, yet invariably tied to the past.
