Digital photography, 2018 (8x)
Elongating, shortening, magnifying, cutting, rotating, deforming. Image without text. Text with image. Strange 3D space. We do not even know where we are. The world is spinning. Things are simplifying. Everything is faster. We are surrounded by technology. And the more we use it, the less we care about what is true and what is not.
The project is based on a realistic view of >>>things<<< in the age of technology. I am interested in their influence and their effect if they were to show up in different shape and place. For this process, I use scanning technology. This is not a 3D scan. The camera is made from an office scanner. In one digital image, it can authentically record the changes that occur before the lens, like shifts, rotations, shortening, lengthening, etc. With this feature, I can reveal things or information that have been stored or created accidentally, in a controlled way.

After studying painting and multimedia, Petr Strouhal has been devoted to experimenting with photographic images and producing his own photographic equipment. In his earlier work, it is often possible to trace a combination of photographs and drawings, such as projections of drawings directly on photographic compositions. An important aspect of Strouhal‘s current work concerns with image manipulation without the use of graphics programs.
