In a world addicted to technological innovation I decided to “take matters into my own hands”. Especially when this manufacturing involves chemical and physical processes, patience and dedication, where the craft and time play a role in shaping the work itself. My work is rooted in doubts and storytelling, and literature, psychology and awareness of the passage of time are the main ingredients of the recipe. I wish to be an inventor, an alchemist, a wizard and a photographer at the same time. I started creating my own cameras from metal boxes with self-blown glass lenses. I works with mirrors that reflect the sky and with monitors that reflect and filter light in a crazy and deceiving way.
At This Art Fair, I present the latest developments of the ongoing project Long Life Cameras, an installation with mirrors, pictures and self-made cameras that will be actively recording their surroundings as the show goes on.www.enricogarzaro.com
