Liz Deschenes, Tilt / Swing, at Miguel Abreu Gallery

Liz Deschenes, Tilt / Swing (360° field of vision, version 1) [Installation view], 2009. Photo: 16 Miles     [more]

Like Jacob Kassay (whom we reviewed earlier this year), Liz Deschenes uses the tools and techniques of photography for decidedly non-photographic ends and produces eerie, scuffed silver prints in the process. Here, empty photographs reflect back their surroundings, referencing a scheme developed by Bauhaus designer Herbert Bayer in the 1930's.  Eponanonymous has all the details and some thoughts on the matter.
