Ewa Doroszenko: Simulated Tortures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 10, 2014
The installation comprises photographs of a woman’s body and several common office tools – a stapler, a pair of scissors, a punch, etc. The form of the photographs has been disturbed with physical stimuli, like piercing the paper, burning or sewing it with a thread. It is not a real body, but its photographic representation that undergoes tortures in the project. However, the stimuli that act on the (photographed) body are authentic and painful, indeed. Piercing, injuring and cutting the photographs serve as a simulation for real “pain test” - a deliberate act of inflicting physical suffering.

"Valley of the Meadows" by Geoffrey Ellis

Photography // Sunday, December 07, 2014
Geoffrey Ellis is a photographer based in San Francisco and Las Vegas. His series Valley of the Meadows reexamines the fantasies associated with the Las Vegas Strip. Though these photos capture things we'd expect (casinos, nudity, glitz) there is an underlying grittiness to them that shifts our view.
