What does “resolution” mean to the photograph in the context of a digital domain? How does an artwork inscribe a space for a social/political contemplation relative to the relentless procession of images that pervade social media and our globally connected mobile devices? This three-person exhibition began with a PAVED Arts workshop, whereby participants referred back to the 19th Century and assembled a rudimentary box camera. In effect, this exhibition presents the work of three Saskatoon-based artists with extremely distinct photographic practices, extending the conversation that brought them together, one that articulates a certain ambivalence of old and new photographic technique deployed in our contemporary information age.
