ABOUT

 

Rebecca Howard's photographic works deal with perceptions of photographic space and experiences of real place, mediating between two and three-dimensions, image and object and surface and depth. Earlier works investigate the ways in which we shape and represent the natural world and the artifice of zoos and museums, while other works deal with the ways in which photographic images shape perceptions of the built environment. 

 

Using sculptural methods, including cutting, folding and mounting, the most recent works explore site-specific installation and self-reflexivity, placing emphasis on the spatial and material properties of the photographic print and its ability to temporarily transform and reconfigure real architectural space.
