Although photographic images existed long before, the birth of photography is marked by the date when we learned to “fix” a representative image on to a light sensitive surface permanently.

Of course, eventually, all surfaces decay and all images fade, but the artists in this exhibition embrace the fleeting nature of the image […]

Transformer Station was pleased to present work by three artists who have developed techniques and processes unique to them, resulting in stunning abstractions that challenge popular conceptions of photography. For Jessica Eaton’s series Cubes for Albers and Lewitt (cfaal), the artist photographs grayscale cubes through combinations of red, green and blue lens filters, using motion and multiple exposures to create increasingly complex forms that defy the logic of time and space. Mariah Robertson experiments with chemical treatments in the darkroom […]

Transformer Station presented the museum premiere of SHOCKWAVES, a hallucinatory trip into a man’s subconscious mind in the moments before his death. The darkly comic SHOCKWAVES is about a man whose traumatic memories of childhood send him on a hallucinogenic carnival ride of self-destruction and murder. Through a Möbius strip of alternate realities, shifting times and multiple dimensions, Shockwaves weaves a kaleidoscopic nightmare tapestry of abuse and revenge. Media artist Kasumi deploys an astonishing 25,000 public domain film samples, rotoscoped […]
