Eva Stenram's art practice revolves around photography and post-production. By treating photographic images as data or raw material to be excavated, mined and processed, she subjects archival material to digital manipulation. As Stenram sifts through these past and present artefacts, she re-imagines and reconfigures the symbols and ideologies at play in the source material. The original functions of the photographs are disrupted, enhanced or subverted, the photographs’ exact temporal and cultural coordinates rendered ambivalent. Her work is ultimately about being a viewer, a consumer of images.
