Fort Worth Community Arts Center presents Andy Mattern: "Average Subject / Medium Distance" opening reception
Turning the camera on its own logic, the photographs in "Average Subject / Medium Distance" reconfigure paper guides once used to determine exposure and other image settings. Stripped of example imagery, technical numbers, and explanatory text, these relics from mid-century photographic practice are reduced to their underlying structure. In the process of removing this information, digital traces are created, shifting the surface into a rupture between physical and virtual, analog and digital, functional and useless.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 26.
