//WEEKLY ART REPORT
Valerie Snobeck's appropriates found photographs but presents them more like sculptures. She uses the modes of entropy, loss, accumulation and displacement as if they were techniques. The work is a diagram within the correlation between natural environment and synthetic material culture. Prints are transferred to plastic or presented behind acid-distressed glass and sheets of gauze stretched on a wooden structure. The original images are either degraded or obscured, and in the process their meaning becomes ever more complicated.
