Art Nook: Response Series by Laura Plageman


By Bianca Nieves

We typically assume photographs are the most palpable proof of a memory. A conclusive glimpse to what was, but what is your end response to photographic memories of actual events? With her latest project, Response, Laura Plageman invokes a delusive appearance with her photography. Known for her “interest in making pictures of the natural seem like a mystery”, she focuses and re-focuses in specific objects of her landscape images; altering them by merging the original representation with different forms of the same image.  The results are distorted sceneries of the same tangible photo. The object, the landscape, the indispensable imagery is still there; you just have to open your eyes to see beyond the memory.
