- For nearly two decades, Miranda Lichtenstein has worked in varied subgenres within photography’s historical archetypes: marginalized contemporary landscapes, refracted still life, performance-based portraiture and process-oriented abstraction.
- In Recorder, Lichtenstein's densely layered abstract works build on feedback loops of printing, scanning and rephotographing materials within the studio.
- This experimental publication intersperses three series based around these loops, using experimental printing and binding to develop her mysterious images further.
Lichtenstein creates images that are at once challenging and seductive, setting forth a chain reaction of feedback loops in which pictorial space is filled and mutated through collaboration with and against the limits of imaging technologies. Recorder contains profound depths and coalescent shapes that never fully resolve themselves, but within this profundity a clear thread can be drawn, connecting the push-and-pull of photography’s tendency to both record and obscure, with a meditation on waste, consumption, and the environmental changes set loose by the anthropocene.
