About this exposition

en
In this essay I describe two projects within the field of visual art. Both works are examples of how the workflow techniques of digital photography can be modified in order to produce artworks that take on a distinct physicality and objecthood, and, as such, may form a spatial and/or haptic relation with the viewer. I discuss how such an approach relates to the ability of photography to point beyond the physical situation of viewing due to the particular virtuality of the photograph. By relating my work to the ideas of Vilém Flusser and Roland Barthes, recent theory on photography and photographic indexicality, as well as contemporary artistic work, I speculate here on how my own work illuminates perceptions of the photograph and understandings of the role of photography in today’s media culture and economy.

I denne artikkelen beskriver jeg to prosjekter innen billedkunst. Prosjektene er exempler på hvordan teknikker innen digitalt fotografi kan modifiseres til å skape arbeid som innehar en distinkt fysikalitet og objekt-karakter, og på den måten kan gå i romlig og/eller haptisk dialog med betrakteren. Jeg går inn på hvordan en slik tilnærming forholder seg til fotografiets evne til å peke utover den fysisk konkrete situasjonen det oppleves i, kraft av mediets egenartede virtualitet. Gjennom en lesning av mine arbeider i lys av Wilem Flusser og Roland Barthes samt andre kunstnere og fototeori fokusert rundt indeksikalitet, spekulerer jeg på hvordan mine arbeider kan belyse hvordan vi sanser fotografier, og hvordan vi kan forstå fotografiets rolle i samtidens mediakultur- og økonomi.
