“Challenging the assumptions that define and limit our experience, my work investigates how information can infiltrate our consciousness, occupy our memory and influence our understanding of the world we live in.”
Sometimes, it takes something so creative to let us see ordinary things differently. Cynthia Grieg has a special touch for that. While hunting online, her series which showcases fascinating photos of daily objects that look like drawings caught my attention. There is something about the idea that I find refreshing.
The Detroit-based photographer shares that she started collecting daily objects from the recent past- these things that are made obsolete by the fast changes in technology and people’s preferences. Her creative process involved whitewashing them with the typical house paint.
She did this as her means of erasure. After which, she uses charcoal to draw on their surfaces. This gives the effect of such visual hybrid – drawing and photography. Just so you know, no digital manipulation was involved. Purely monocular point of view of the camera!
