“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.” Susan Sontag
Sontag made this observation in 1979. Thirty-eight years later, the same concerns are continually being raised. The usage of the photographic medium has come to the forefront of our everyday encounters. A viewer becomes complacent in the absorption of imagery rather than questioning the truth of what they are seeing. In the absence of truth, new meaning is generated. How do artists address this proliferation of images in their artistic practice? Three artists who start from the same set of photographic concerns address these issues of representation.
“All I know is what’s on the Internet.” Donald Trump
“Back to the Future pt II” features the works of Kara Gut, Harrison Moenich, and Chris Cox. The works will be a series of photographic and sculptural installations that address the loss of the physical, and the search for truth during our societal migration to mediated and virtual space.
