“Historically I have considered these pieces as sculpture. I’m most concerned with creating physical spaces using the layers of images to articulate a presence in the photograph that may or may not be initially apparent. The pieces work to make vision tactile by inviting the viewer’s gaze to move layer by layer through the physical space in front of them as well as the space captured in the image. I’m very intrigued by the notion of looking at and through something at the same time. The difference between the two is mattering less and less.” Scott Hazard in conversation with Rosecrans Baldwin • Morning News
