Weekly Inspiration: Balance

This week’s Photoboxing theme is “Balance“. I chose this theme because I wanted to push the photographers to examine the gravity of things around them. “Balance” could refer to time or financial management; it could refer to the delicate balance of man and nature; it could refer to rough things and soft things; it could refer to the physical weight of things. There are so many ways to interpret “balance” and I am excited to see how they interpret it. Here are some artists whose work conveys the notion of “balance”:

Axiom & Simulation examines the ways in which humans quantify and explore our surroundings by comparing artistic, scientific, and digital realism. As a developed global culture, we are constantly transforming physical space and objects into abstract non-physical thought to gain a greater understanding of composition and the inner workings of our surroundings. These transformations often take the form of mathematical or scientific interpretation. As a result of these changes, we can lose all reference to the source: when the calculated representation is compared to its real counterpart, an arbitrary and disconnected relationship is created in which there is very little or no physical or visual connection resulting in questions of definition. Mark Dorf currently resides in Hudson, New York where he creates his images and continues to study the fields of photography and contemporary art.
