Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to announce Imminent Infinite, our second solo exhibition by Sanaz Mazinani. The show debuts photographs made by methodically reconfiguring photographs from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Imminent Infinite uses scientific imagery of star clusters and supernovas that are imbued with the awe-inspiring power of the unknown.
This project is the latest in a series of works that draws from Mazinani’s now decade long cataloguing of imagery sourced from the World Wide Web. For Imminent Infinite, she has culled photographs, shapes, and colour sets endeavouring to assemble ideal compositions that act as portals to metaphysical exploration. Central to Mazinani’s practice is the study of digital photographic propagation and its impact on representation and perception. For the artist, visualizations of deep space infer the latent beauty in the unknown. The imagery of the cosmos becomes a metaphorical contrast to the limitations implicit in networks and systems of the post internet age.
