A String of Data: disrupting, altering and generating the photographic image
Historically, photographic technology is presented as a series of seamless transactions that are potentially free of human interaction and stationed as a mute participant in the production of the photographic image. Ms Nishioka examined how a creative practice can harness such technological processes to alter the aesthetic and theoretical positioning of a photographic practice. Through a process of making photographic works she found the disruption of technology exposed subliminal processes once native to electronic imaging and contributed to an extended understanding of contemporary photography. She tested how photography maps the passage of time onto a photographic surface by authoring a dis-synchronization between two key frameworks: the variability of nature and the consistency of the machine that records it. By presenting a series of photographic works in exhibition format, her research invites the viewer into a recursive questioning of what constitutes the photographic image, what is selectively included, and what is silently extracted.
