Neal Cox: Various Cameras and Images

March 5 – April 20, 2013

I am currently involved with the design, construction and use of pinhole cameras as tools for collecting marks. My recent camera designs, based on Platonic geometry, allow for multiple film planes, spaced symmetrically one from another. I don’t think of the resulting images as photographs, per se, with a specific subject matter, framed in a deliberate manner. Rather, I think of them as marks to be used in a composite image such that the flattened version of the geometric structure of the camera is revealed in the final work of art. I’m very interested in seeing how each mark interacts serendipitously with the lines, shapes and values of the next mark. I consider both the photographic compositions as well as the cameras as finished works of art. – Neal Cox
