About this work of Art
Katie Hallam | Beneath Us | Digital photograph
‘Beneath Us’ was a moment caught on the stunning Norfolk coastline. The fluid movement and white foam of the sea rolling in and out draws you into the scene to the silhouette of a man and his dog. The effect of the ground falling away creates ideas and feelings about being grounded, of being connected to land, sea and air.
Katie Hallam says: “Technology consumes us all in today’s society. I am interested in the relationship we have with all digital technologies and as a Photographer I am intrigued in exploring the construction and deconstructing of digital image data, coding, pixels and the ‘glitches’ that can occur in our technological experiences. My collections explore the question: Is it the technology itself that is the cause of ‘the beautiful error’ or our own hand that forces the interruption? My photographs are rewritten, deliberately corrupted and then played with some more through processes which stem from computer hardware, apps, operating systems and data coding. The results are unique and random and often give an appreciated aesthetic that encourage viewers to capture otherwise unnoticed details through pixels, colour and composition and clearly please those who are excited about technology itself. Whether or not you accept a glitch or an error in technology as an art form, glitches themselves are short-lived, unless captured and displayed and it’s my passion as an artist to do just that.
