Matthew Gamber’s Transparent Seven Inch was featured in the Center’s Consumption exhibition. His ongoing series Any Color You Like examines two tone representation in a kaleidoscope world.
The photographs in Any Color You Like are an experiment in how photography can confuse our perception of information. These photographs are of objects whose primary function is to stimulate our perception of color. A black-and-white image might depict an object of the present, but its character is forever is locked into the past. When these items are rendered in a traditional black-and-white format, the information that remains is merely an abstraction of its previous form.
