INHABITING PATTERN by Flo Armitage -Hookes for ALCHEMY - THE ELIXIR OF IMAGE MAKING. 

PRINT SIZE: 841 × 1189 mm

INHABITING PATTERN explores how the familiar can be manipulated and repeated to become strange and extraordinary; using a close-up, digital photograph of texture. By transporting her images off a digital screen and onto fabric, the 2D image is not only transformed into a physical object, but one that a person is able to embody. This distancing from the original clarity of the image and its format intrigues her, as it creates uncertainty. Flo pushes the boundaries of Photography, traditionally seen as ‘documentation’ or as ‘conveying reality’, by capturing closely cropped images and manipulating them; concealing the subject and making the ordinary appear extraordinary. In contrast to documentation,here the environment is ironically made unfamiliar by the process of photographing it. By distorting reality in her unique ways, Flo embraces all the possibilities that lie Beyond Photography.
