TO WATCH ! •  GoSee Tipp : Aberrations - die einzigartigen Bildkompositionen des Fotokünstlers und SCREENings 2011 Finalisten Jim Kazanjian auf GoSee

Einer der nachhaltigsten Finalisten des SCREENings Awards 2011 ist für uns der Fotokünstler Jim Kazanjian. Grund genug seine Arbeiten hier auf GoSee zu zeigen.

Seine "Fotografien" sind zusammengesetzt aus unzähligen digitalen Bildschnipseln und erzeugen eine absurde Realität die einen an Welten jenseits der realen glauben lässt.

Jim selber zu seiner Motivation und Vorgehensweise : "My images are digitally manipulated composites made from photographs I find online. Currently, I have acollection of over 25 thousand high resolution photos to work with.

The number of found images I use in a piece can vary, but it is usually around 30. On the more complex pieces I’ve used more. I generally sample sections from photographs I find interesting and use them as building blocks.

I assemble these parts together in Photoshop to create a nonexistent space that mimics a photograph. I do not use a camera at any stage in this process.

I’ve focused on photography as a medium because of the cultural misunderstanding that it has a kind of built-in objectivity.This allows me to set up a visual tension within my work, to make it resonate and lure the viewer further inside.

My current body of work is inspired in large part by the literature of H.P. Lovecraft and other ‘weird’ fiction writers. I amintrigued with the narrative archetypes they utilize to de-familiarize the familiar.

I like to use those devices as a foundation to build upon and generate entry points for my images.”
