Annija Muižule, a Latvian-born visual artist and researcher currently based in Amsterdam. Finding myself increasingly confronted with influx of images in media and visual representations all around us, I deconstruct the contemporary role of photography. My work discusses images possessing the means to produce the world rather than depicting it. By reflecting on photography as technology, medium and a form of communication, I capture constructed realities and mediated consciousness controlled by visual information.
