Second Nature

Jun 04, 2019 - Ewa Doroszenko

I would like to present my recent, ongoing series Second Nature. In the project, I try to answer the question of how to authentically capture the rich duality of physical and virtual life. How to present the offline and online experience of a natural landscape? In my photographic works, I experiment with new technologies, trying to develop a new kind of aesthetic and artistic self-expression suitable for the digital age. A radical computer-treatment makes my photographs look like abstract paintings. I create images building multi-element objects and taking photos of them in the form of still life and then changing them on my computer screen. As a professional painter (in 2012 I received my doctorate in painting at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun) I try to present one of the most classic themes – landscape, in a more current form, using the alphabet of tomorrow.
