Jason Horowitz: Ashton Heights Re/Seen
Jenkins Community Gallery
In his Re/Seen series, photographer Jason Horowitz uses the Photo Sphere/Street View app and his smartphone’s camera to create immersive abstract views. By subverting and manipulating the normal process for creating panoramas, Horowitz disassembles and reconstructs 360° scenes. The resulting images represent a new kind of computational photographic “seeing”, a melding of Horowitz’s vision and the programming of the camera app’s artificial intelligence. Instead of depicting the world in a realistic documentary fashion, the finished works playfully bend space and time to create images that reinterpret reality through a dizzying sense of mystery. For Ashton Heights Re/Seen, Horowitz presents a selection of images from the Re/Seen series all made a short distance from Arlington Arts Center. Through their surreal beauty, the images encourage viewers to reconsider the possibilities of both their immediate surroundings and the technology they hold in their hands every day.
