“RE: Conceptualizing Vision” explores our new and evolving reality in a post photographic world. The image makers in this exhibition reframe our notion of visual reality and form new photographic truths. Through the investigation of the photographic object they reframe existing points of reference to generate new points from which to depart. Each of these image-makers shares a sense of place and time, that is, their images are based on ‘it existed’, ‘a place’ and ‘a time’. The resultant images, however, fall outside of these; they simultaneously bear witness to what is and offer possibilities for the future.
The “Center for Photographic Media and Culture” at Parsons The New School of Design is a research center devoted to redefining photographic practice in the 21st Century. Through project-based experimentation, critical research, and dialogue with a global network of affiliated practitioners, the CPMC confronts the complexities of image-making in our increasingly media-rich environment. Situating itself at the generative intersection of art, technology, and culture, the Center aims to support and promote emerging forms of photographic practice and practitioners rising from this axis.
