Liz DeschenesOn Photograms

In a video ​made in connection with the 2012 Whitney Biennial, ​Liz Deschenes discusses her work with photograms​. Deschenes describes making cameraless​, mirror-like​ works​, developing them outside where temperature and humidity ​influence the results. Deschenes notes that her work “takes the idea of the mirror in photography and doesn’t make it a metaphor but actually makes it an object,” creating reflective pieces that invite active participation.
