Details:

The artist used a single graphite drawing on paper to create this photogram—a photograph made without a camera. The punctures in the surface of the final work look similar to streaks of water, a reference to the chemical process of image-making.

① Artwork:

Symbol

The artist used a single graphite drawing on paper to create this photogram—a photograph made without a camera by placing an object directly on light-sensitive material. The word "symbol" is deconstructed across the page from left to right. The artist used an awl, a small tool used for piercing leather, to carefully puncture the surface of the source paper alongside its rips, rubs and tears. The result looks similar to streaks of water, a reference to the process of image-making—including the chemistry pools and water baths, as well as the image that emerges from just under the surface of the liquid.

Luke Stettner

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.
