Freedom 8933, archival pigment photograph by Miranda Gatewood, has been chosen for The Art of Meditation, Islip Art Museum, Islip, NY, curated by Seung Lee. The exhibit runs from August 15 through October 7, 2018. Freedom 8933 is part of a series of images that explore motion. Using the camera to freeze a definitive moment, transient and somewhat random views are made solid. Light, itself, and the temporal properties of the day are made into objects to behold. The series comments on the way things are seen and absorbed in a hypervisual culture, with its deficit of depth, lack of deep examination, and the brevity of the experience. I use photography to make an object of time, to make an object of light, or both.
