① Artwork:

Darken

The artist used eight source drawings to create this photogram—a photograph made without a camera by placing an object directly on light-sensitive material. Each drawing was made on semi-transparent tracing paper, functioning similarly to a negative in a darkroom. The opaquest elements in the source becoming the brightest in the photogram, with the word ‘darken’ the brightest part of the work—alluding to the inverse magic of photography.

Luke Stettner explores a range of experimental strategies in his photography and sculpture. He uses highly technical processes to create images and juxtaposes them with avant-garde language and concrete poetry. Stettner's work is invested in poetics, employing words to evoke both form and feeling—while still acknowledging that the meaning of any image is made by the viewer.
