Abbie Hart

 

My primary medium is photographic practice, bringing together traditional and alternative photographic techniques such as photo-emulsion or large format photography with contemporary and developing technologies, for example the application of code and raspberry pi technologies. Building one-of-a-kind cameras for the production of, and as part of my artworks is an important part of my practice, controlling the results and creation of the medium of production to finishing art piece.

A deep fascination with traditional photographic techniques is ingrained within my practice, creating nostalgic and visually challenging 2D print based media as well as photographic sculpture. Applying influences from psychological and scientific theorist such as Isaac Newton’s ‘Laws of motion’ and Jaques Lacan’s ‘mirror phase’, my work seeks to reflect upon my own history and experiences alongside exploring human interaction, within the context of therapeutic and autobiographical themes.
