Extreme Shifts in Perspective is a year-long experimental project that explores the intersection between nature and digital media. Through layering techniques, color and contrast manipulation, and mathematical equations, the project offers a unique perspective on navigating the complexities of modern relationships. It visually showcases how objects of nature can be transformed into unrecognizable, yet beautiful images through various digital mediums.
The project began with my fascination with the scanning process and its similarities to human relationships, where perspective is limited by a moment in time. Structured as a quintet of books, each book provides a visually captivating experience through new layers of manipulations. Part I examines the diverse objects captured through the scanner. Part II questions the “colors” (perspectives) that shape the understanding of people and situations through color manipulated visuals. Part III and V draw parallels between the digital alterations present in modern-day relationship narratives with visuals created through AI filters and pattern-making processes in Photoshop. The final book highlights similarities in the process of creation in both the digital and natural realms, sharing the profound comprehension of individuals and their connection with the world.
The project immerses the audience in the beauty of the images at hand, encouraging deep reflection and appreciation for the layers of complex manipulations that shape our understanding of what is natural, good, and right. It offers a deeper understanding of the forces at work in our world encouraging the audience to reflect on their connection to the world around them.
