ABOUT

 

Born in the UK in 1989, Rebecca Howard lives and works in Manchester. Her practice investigates the artifice of representation in relation to the built environment, specifically the ways in which photographic images enter into and mediate our experiences of the physical world. She is currently undertaking doctoral research at Manchester School of Art (2016-present day, AHRC funded). This projects deals with the digital photographic print as spatial object. Experimenting with methods of re-photography, installation and sculpture, she explores the spatial and dimensional properties of the photographic print, and its capacity to re-configure architectural space.
