When an object is photographed, a transformation inherently takes place. A three-dimensional thing has now become a two-dimensional thing, a flat representation.
What can be extracted if you interrupt the process of translation when an object becomes a photograph?
What failures occur in that flattening? What happens when an object seeks its own two-dimensionality,
or wants to become a photograph itself? Potentially, a brackish solid-liquid soup?
A John Carpenter-esque half-formed in-between "thing," as we saw in the unseen transformative monster in his “The Thing?”
These objects/photographs are an ongoing collection of cultural objects extracted and documented, as tests and research continue.
