Matching Socks Text
Has photography become so mundane, and its manipulation so unanimously accepted that we have lost all bearing on its legitimacy and, ultimately, on reality itself? Matching Socks explores this notion by embracing photography as technically flawed and manipulable. The project comprises Photoshop scripts that swap colors and/or use other types of image transforms to carry out mundane tasks. In this schema, photography is used to do things rather than just document them (it itself acts as a task worker).
