"I am interested in perception; in vision itself and in how we see, more than in what we see. I want to foreground the perceptual experience over anything we may think about whatever it is we may be looking at." - Uta Barth
"Some of my photographs are records or documents of real-time performances and ephemeral sculptures. With these, I hope to track the invisible. To describe the ineffable. To capture magic in the mundane. Transcendence. Leftovers. Following the trail of crumbs. Things that happen in time. Sex. Food." - Rebecca Horne
