Christine Carr, 221.07.43 (2007), pigmented inkjet print, 22 x 27 inches.

Carr highlights the form and scale of these monumental buildings by use of composition and light in order to “imbue a sensibility rather than provide examples of individual use.” Monolith arouses an unsettling feeling about power, security, and perception.

Kalee Appleton September 15 – October 12, 2014

Forrest (Yw.Zv.Ur.Zv.Us), 2014, archival inkjet print, 16” x 26”

For her photographic series Bit Rot, Kalee Appleton “synthetically corrupted” landscape photographs through a manipulation of each image’s digital code. The final resulting images appear fragmented and distorted by bright colorations, with shapes formed and reformed that ultimately obscure the landscapes the original images documented.

Swamp ( zt.wg.tl.vn), 2012, archival inkjet print, 16” x 24”

For Appleton Bit Rot is representative of the “effect and consequences the recent digital age has on our lives,” and her works challenge the viewer to consider the manifold ways in which digital technology has functioned to alter visual perception, the experience of space, and the experience of the natural world.
