ABOUT

 

Rebecca Howard's practice is concerned with perceptions of imagined space and experiences of real place. She explores the illusory and perceptual issues intrinsic to both photography and the built environment, consistently questioning the relationship between two and three-dimensional space, representation and object, original and copy. Recent PhD practice uses photography, combined with the mechanisms of sculpture and site-specific installation to interrogate the spatial dynamics between photography, print and building. Conceptually, the research addresses the materiality of the photographic print and its potential to transform and re-imagine space and form. Re-installed back into the built space, the viewer is invited to move around and experience the prints as something physical and architectonic
