In this portfolio "New Color Vision", sculptural approaches are used to liberate the photograph from its processes, to speak of photography through materials not associated with the medium. Using image and object together the work unravels how our photo saturated world has changed our relationship to the experience of the three-dimensional world. This method of working is heavily influenced by the graphic nature of the internet. I explore how the very nature of spontaneous screen-based collage influences and complicates our reception of often delicate or political content.
