How to lay bare the parameters of the photographic space? How to present its technical determinants, its relation to gravity and scale, surface and depth, lived dimensions of time and space? How to invite the viewer to reading the spatio-temporal reconfiguration taking place in a photograph? Singing Lessons for Photography is an attempt to articulate these questions in visual terms. Referring to Barad, we could say that the work is a kind of notation arrangement that enacts "agential cuts" in the photographic space and highlights certain aspects of it (at the cost of others). Its title refers to a process involving various forms of translation aiming at intensification of the language of photography up to the point where it is released from the burden of signification up to a point that allows it to resonate itself.*
In 2007 the project led also to a media theoretical essay "The Language of Photography as a Translation Task" that relates Walter Benjamin's language philosophy and theory of translation to photography and artistic research (pdf here on the right).
The photography installation Choir (2011) takes up the theme of photographic space again and presents a photographically recorded spatio-temporal event laid out in a planar grid-like constellation.
