Referent Fold by GM Keaton, Benjamin Heyer, and Timothy Earl Niell

Referent Fold contends with the loosening of the structural power of associations found in the indexicality of photography and archaeology. For GraceMarie Keaton, Benjamin Heyer, & Timothy Earl Neill, the index is no longer a literal trace connected to “truth”; the index is instead a fertile ground that works to reveal the poetic connection between things - how one relates to the other. GMK, BH, and TEN approach the image and the object as neither fixed or transcendent, but as autonomous agents - having the ability to grant and expand a subjective perspective.
