ARNE SVENSON

I vicini
Arne Svenson è un fotografo autodidatta, ma la sua sensibilità è stata in gran parte formata dai suoi primi lavori come terapeuta/educatore che lavorava con bambini gravemente disabili. La sua visione abbraccia l’insolita e bizzarra individualità di persone e luoghi e li rappresenta con bellezza, chiarezza e riverenza. Crea la maggior parte del suo lavoro all’interno dell’ambiente controllato dello studio, e anche quando si avventura a registrare il mondo, la sua visione è informata dalla qualità degli interni del suo studio. Svenson lavora in modo seriale e ossessivo su progetti discreti che variano notevolmente, ma condividono queste qualità. Il senso dell’umorismo e il fatalismo consentono a Svenson di passare liberamente da un’ossessione all’altra, manifestandosi sempre con estrema abilità, diligenza e amore.

Eyeris
Eyeris is a cultural prosthetic that renders the user dependent on human touch for sight. While many of today’s digital devices extend our abilities to connect with each other, disability of our current digital devices can been seen through our loss of tangible human interaction. I made this piece in trying to explore the importance of human interdependency in a society living under the myth of autonomy driven by technological symbiosis between man and computer. Eyeris is a mechanically operated electronic device powered by digital input that is deliberately over-engineered to call attention to the social behavioral conditioning imposed on us through less discreet technological devices that we assimilate on a daily basis.

Apophenia Cloud Travel Apparatus
“…a visitor must first gear up in a simple uniform of gray booties, lab coat and adjust a safety-helmet-type harness to their head. This harness supports a grey rectangle of plastic positioned directly in front of one’s face, leaving only the periphery vision for navigation. My first assumption was that this blockage was somehow supposed to simulate an unusual visual disability. However, upon entering the designated darkened room, my ‘screen,’ caught the projection of a giant eye, which filled my vision like some early surrealist film.” Sarrita Hunn
