Focal Point is a juried exhibition focusing on how photography can be pushed to its fullest potential. Exhibited works are not only purely photographic works, but also include mixed media.
Work from Aaron Wilder's Details project is included in the exhibition. Inspired by the Evidence collaboration between Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel as well as Sol LeWitt's PhotoGrids, Details is a series of zoomed in photographs of minutiae in the cityscape. It is an exploration of marks, patterns, and signs of weathering. These are details of human impact and manipulation cut off from context to emphasize the aesthetics of wear and tear that typically go unnoticed in our daily lives. In addition to individual photographs, Details also explores levels of granularity and the limitations of rendering minute details of details as visible through dissecting each image into 121 individual sub-photographs printed as Instax prints.
