an endless, formless ruin
Jessica Thalmann closely observes our built environments, photographing and reconfiguring them into sculptural forms that return our attention to surfaces and textures, as well as the social and political histories, to which we’ve become inured. Her eyes roam freely when taking pictures, but the real work begins when she manipulates the prints by hand. For Thalmann, a photograph contains both a promise and a trap, just like the cities she re-envisions in her work.
