Using the camera to transmute reality, Fabiola Menchelli combines diverse perspectives in a single plane, generating a dimension that exists only within the camera. The images from this body of work are constructed inside of the camera exposing the light-sensitive surface multiple times altering the object, shapes, and colors, thus generating different planes of light that are combined in the latent image.
The work reveals the subjectivity of the lens by conceiving the camera as a perceptual apparatus that points inside to create the image. Seeking to question the ontological nature of the photographic medium to elevate the space of representation beyond the paradigms of perception.
