Contested histories, auratic translations. I work with digital and analogue photographs of places that hold a multitude of historical and political narratives. My photographic and print interventions explore the interstices between historic and contemporary processes to create projected images and installation pieces, as well as print editions. The return of the material to the flat surface of the digital is of critical concern, as the ‘uncanny’ surface is turned into a haptic object more in keeping with printmaking practices and early pictorial photographs. I am searching for an affective resonance and the enactment of the hand-made, where touch and ‘noise’ return to the surface of the print as a resistance and response to discourses of acceleration and reproduction, remembering and forgetting.
