What happens when we bestow consciousness upon an inanimate object? Inspiredy feminist-science thinker Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg Manifesto,” What if colorful landscapes that can’t usually be seen by the human eye are suddenly brought to light?
Caity Fares created these luminous, 35 mm color film images with a homemade mannequin-head camera. Projector lenses in the eyes, a strip of color film in the back of the head, and inevitable light leaks in the construction capture what appear to be shadowy mountain ranges, wisps of chemical gas, and muted city lights.
Caity Fares was born in San Diego, CA in 1987. Her bodies of work include both abstract/experimental film photography and culturally-driven documentary projects. Caity's photography has shown in galleries on the west and east coast including the San Diego Art Institute Museum. She has been published in Coast Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and F-Stop magazine. She is currently completing her MFA in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute and lives in Berkeley, CA.
