These images are exactly what they say they are: bodies within a configuration of space. In this new series, Kaczynski explores the material state of the green screen with a series of photographs. Historically, the green screen provides an infinite site within an infinite scale in which to position a subject. Using analog or digital technology to substitute chroma with an alternative site, the image is allowed to move from the actual to the potential.
These photographs attempt to address the green screen as a subject equal to the figure, not simply a ground for the figure. Instead of replacing site, these images collapse two material moments within the studio, the site of process and production. The material states of chroma and body support one another; calling for, confirming, dissuading the attention of vision.
