Katie Bret-Day uses the viscous materiality of photography to explore the contingent and discursive nature of being. With interests in the posthuman and connected ecology her research explores the amalgamation of digital and physical bodies using alternative methods of image capture, interventions and printing.
Her ongoing series Sinking in Air meditates on Posthuman materiality, exploring notions of agential realism and somatic intelligence. From coral bleachings, to slime moulds and black holes there are connections between these material bruisings, oozings and intelligences. Visual responses from an expansive method of research produce an evolving discourse that uses the materiality of the photographic as a slippery extension of the mind, stretching between the imagined and the index.
