The Room

eric weiner

The Room is a staging area, a digital space where the photographed outside can be brought indoors and examined without context. Ordinarily, artworks are examined within a room—at home or in a gallery—and the space where an encounter happens remains invisible. We automatically subtract the room, having been trained to only look within the frame. By introducing the room itself within the frame, a new intimate context is created where the former ground becomes the foreground.
