Robert Bodnar | binary restraint

“Photography” is a phenomena that is becoming increasingly intangible and incomprehensible in this day and age. The days of defining a photograph as a printed image on a sheet of paper are long past. Photography today is a ubiquitous technological principle, a social behavioral mode, and much more. 

With Robert Bodnar, Galerie Straihammer and Seidenschwann presents an artist who is continually redefining the boundaries of photography.

Robert Bodnar explores new technical and conceptual forms of photography and photographic images in relation to human perception. By using hi-tech industrial materials and methods, he expands the definition of the photographic image and what it can represent. A “Digital Intermediate”, he follows the transition from analogue to digital and the transformation from digital to computational photography. He combines the traditional methods of photography with sophisticated digital technologies.  He transfers photographic processes into real spaces to create installation art experiences.  The conceptual reference points of the Binary Restraint series are raster, light, and perception.  The pictures and installations playfully reference the origins of photography in the silver salt crystals of analog film, as well as current forms of images as abstract information embedded in the circuit boards of our electronic devices.

Bodnar’s historical canon ranges from photograms to Photoshop copy stamps. He makes the materiality of digital structures tangible, expanding the possible range of how photographic images can manifest.
