Jonathan Rattner – January 2013

In contrast to prevailing ideals of our digital age such as multitasking, speed, and efficiency, I explore the possibilities of slowness to provoke reflection and reevaluation of the places, stories, memories, and objects we use to generate meaning as individuals and as a society.

I seek to offer an alternative, open, and elastic aesthetic experience that challenges socially and culturally established perceptions of the world and reimagines our physical and temporal landscape. My material consists of fragmentary images of everyday moments, which I reassemble into new configurations in an effort to draw attention to the forgotten, the ignored, the banal, and the unseen.
