Asleep in the Factory


From Hamiltonian Press Release:
Through his newest series of black-and-white photographs, Asleep in the Factory, Kyle Tata collages scenes of darkroom contrivances, stock image booklets, and invention patents to create fictive workspaces filled to capacity with layers of clutter. Tata's isolation and examination of analog photography's pedagogical eccentricities - obsessively detailed diagrams from darkroom manuals, sexually fraught stock imagery- convey a human presence while proposing a re-evaluation of pictorial logic altogether.
