This series looks at reanimating objects via multiple exposures of colored light, blended to make new color mixes. The flora and fauna are representative of species becoming extinct at alarming rates in this Anthropocene era, due mostly to human induced climate change and related abusive actions. By showcasing them under broken glass in candy colors, the viewer is stimulated to look deeper at the quality of their forms.
Fogelson stresses that the objects dictate their own image as they index themselves in the cameraless process he uses with subjects sitting upon light sensitive materials. The agency of light and the work of collecting and composing complete it. States of decomposition are often colorful, and Broken Cabinet reminds us that this beauty carries a cost.
