    photography

    Diane Meyer received a BFA in Photography from New York University, Tisch School of the Arts in 1999 and an MFA in Visual Arts from The University of California, San Diego in 2002. She has been living in Los Angeles since 2005 where she is an Associate Professor of Photography at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

    Statement

    'I am interested in the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history, as well as the means by which photographs transform history into nostalgic objects that obscure understandings of the past.

    The works presented in the exhibition represent three series, each relating to ideas of memory, nostalgia and trying to make sense of time and place. In these works, sections of the photographs have been obscured by cross-stitch embroidery sewn directly into the photograph. The embroidery deteriorates the original photograph and forms a pixelated version of the underlying image. Since large areas of the photographs are concealed by the embroidery, small, seemingly trivial details emerge, while the larger picture and context are erased.

    In Time Spent Otherwise Forgotten, I was particularly interested in the disjunct between lived experience and photographic representation. The photographs in this series are a combination of family snapshots from my childhood and photographs I took in high school of landscapes around where I grew up in New Jersey. By having the embroidery take the visual structure of digital pixelation, I wanted to make a connection between the human brain trying to retrieve information and digital storage. The tactile, hand-embroidered overlay not only relates to the digital aesthetic, but also hints at the growing trend of photos remaining primarily digital—stored on cell phones and hard drives, but rarely printed out into a tangible object.'
