joseph kesisoglou - optimising photography

I am a media artist and documentary photographer. I am currently researching the impact of digital technology on the photographic. Through years of experimentation with lens based media I have shifted my creative process on digital environments. For the past two years I have been exploring the boundaries of the digital image file, by investigating the code beneath the visual layer, using unconventional manipulation techniques. These investigations started by chance, when a series of corrupted files were produced by the digital camera. As a photographer I have been interested in the natural landscape, and often in the presence of artificial structures within those places. My latest project is the view through a window of an airplane at 9 miles above the ground, where traces of civilisation fade away in the vastness of the sky.
