Sol Hill: Signal from Noise
March 20 @ 12:00 pm - June 26 @ 5:00 pm
Sol Hill’s photography-based work captures images from the world and shows us an alternate vision, full of errant visual incidents and covert meanings that lie just beneath the surface. The artist allows both reality and his own feelings to reveal themselves with an unexpectedly poignancy. His process is both technological and poetic, showing the limits of the visible and the possibilities of seeing beyond it. Noise is comprised of two distinct series, Token Feminine and Sublime Noise. The series have divergent imagery, but they share a common process. Hill takes photographs, and then permits a variety of digital noise – extraneous energy in the form of light, heat, or cosmic rays – to affect the image. With a large-scale print, the digital noise is manifested in randomized colored pixels, along with long exposures and blurring, which result from the movement of the subject or the camera.
