Breakdown features a group of photo-based artists responding to the constantly evolving yet historically reminiscent nature of the still image. Cumming constructs the climax of moments of chaos and trauma depicting both the event and its aftermath. Doleatto constructs decadent stilllife scenarios and photographs their decomposition. Page creates a building/ un-building machine that exemplifies tedium and redundancy. Sheppard utilizes stereoscopy to create animated GIFs that exhibit a simultaneous spatial construction and deconstruction.
