Bypassing the rational
Un baño de color
Gran serie fotográfica de Maciek Jasik quién a través de esta serie de fotografías tituladas “Bypassing the rational” trata de mostrarnos una parte emocional que según él ha perdido la fotografía con la llegada de las redes sociales y el nuevo fenómeno fotográfico mundial. Si quieren leer el statement de esta obra se los dejo a continuación:
Photography has flooded our world with images of ourselves. We are accustomed to seeing and assessing images of people constantly, most of whom are celebrities or strangers we will never meet or know. We instantly affix attributes, often based just on the attractiveness of the other gender. In the 19th century, photography allowed painting to pull away from detail to focus on an emotional response to reality. With ‘Bypassing the Rational,’ I am knowingly retreating from the details which draw and entice us, and which allow us to judge. Seeing every pore, every scar and sag is not a route to intimacy; it is a pretence.
Instead, the focus only reaches part of the figure. The rest is a blur in a vibrant, limitless sea of color, a confluence of emotions and feelings; this evokes the traces of memory we have for each other. The limited focus demonstrates our inability to ever fully understand each other. This action becomes so pronounced, genders can be difficult to discern; even the basics can’t be taken for granted.
