Joseph Blair (b. 1995) works between photographic, mixed media, and moving image mediums. Blair’s practice speaks on the technologically mediated existence and explores the concerns that are inherent in this terrain. Blair’s work has a keen focus on the social and emotional consequences arising from our collective interactions which occur as a result of new technologies and online spaces. Key areas of focus include surveillance and security, the eroding of geographic boundaries in the digital sphere, and the dynamics between the natural and electronic environments. Blair’s work navigates this liminal space/self by grappling with raw and vibrant imagery taken from both the obscure and the mundane.
