Blind Shift #7, 2019
Lenticular print, edition 1 of 3
For Blind Shift #7, Mazinani uses source material that is intentionally pre-image, inviting the viewer to focus on the photographic information in the form of simple abstractions made by the artist in the darkroom with light and photographic paper. Her manipulations to the image are entirely based on hue variations. Created by combining and interlacing three images, the lenticular print flips through a series of hue variations as the viewer moves past the piece. The work is process driven and offers poetic reflections on loss, time, event, and memory, core to the conceptual dimensions of photography.
