Cristian del Risco says that he’s always taking new photographs, which he exposes and scans as part of his process, ultimately becoming part of his finished works It’s a lot of mixing and experimentation, he explains. “They are like a combination of graphic design with photography, there are some illustrations, but I tend to combine graphic design with photographs more, I also use old photographs.”

For the series Apparatum Armorum Ineptum and My Reproof all photos were shot at night on the rooftop of the artist’s home over a period of thirteen months. The images feature rockets and eerie sculptural figures that are drawn with light using long exposures. In some photos, Perlman can be seen choreographing his set-up or simply reading while a rocket launches or a figure confronts him. The pieces are simultaneously performative and sculptural. For Perlman, photography is an allegorical process filled with constant experimentation, both conceptual and technical… – [ Extract : Blum & Poe ]

Jordan Tull explores the exchange between artwork, site, and viewer through sculpture and installation. Tull has produced site-specific sculpture responding to architectural settings throughout Portland, OR. His object-based sculptures explore structural and perceptual phenomenon through geometric abstraction and allusive metaphor. Tull’s current work advances for the development of new spatial languages experienced within the context of contemporary architecture and sculptural discourse. Through technology, collaboration and experimentation Tull creates radical asymmetries, ordering systems and dynamic geometric progressions as applied to site-specific contexts and computer-generated models. Tull’s works aim to establish an alternative perceptual approach to spatial applications through the employment of computer-aided fabrication technology and space manipulation.

But what of his camera photography? Even today Moholy’s published and exhibited camera photographs are invariably images he made in Europe. Photo historians appear to assume that Moholy gave up camera photography after he arrived in Chicago. Yet he did continue to photograph, primarily with a 35 mm Leica camera he had acquired in England. The main cause of this historical misconception is that Moholy no longer appeared interested in bringing his camera images before the public. Although a few black and white images intended as advertisements have survived, most are personal records of his family. Another important factor is that during the 1940s, Moholy photographed primarily in color. He continued to experiment with the new Kodachrome slide film that had come on the market in 1937. He made hundreds of 35 mm color slides, of which a remnant has survived. They depict all of the subjects of his earlier black/white photographs: travel pictures, portraits, formalist compositions, as well as documentation of the activities of the School. He made beautiful abstract images, successfully creating works of art from nothing but light and color. But the processes of color reproduction of that time were simply not up to his standards and so his latest camera photography is still virtually unknown.
