    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Soo Kim: 2006-07 Faculty Development Grant Report


Report:

In 2006-07 I received a Faculty Development Grant to support the development of a body of work that alters and slows the reading of the photographic image, to move away from simply what is depicted, and toward a reading of an image that is changed by the removal of some of the image's parts.

The process of making this body of work included photographing images as well as making a video. Both elements were informed by ideas of absence, removal, silence, and the delivery of meaning. I was interested in making a parallel between stage directions in plays and the physical removal of parts of the photographic image from the single photographic image – using these voids and absences to slow down the photograph as well as give meaning to silences and empty spaces.

This project allowed me to use my practice of cutting into photographs in a different way. Rather than using this subtractive method to add narrative elements to my photographs, with this project I excised parts of the photograph and brought a different dimensionality to the imagery depicted. Instead of cutting shapes and figures that were identifiable, the cuts took on a more geometric form that had to do with the imagery recorded in the photograph. I made a work that considered the materiality of the photographic medium differently than the way I had addressed these ideas in previous bodies of work.
