In Hidden Dimension, Boston-based Russian photographer Anna Yeroshenko converts a series of architecture photographs into three-dimensional structures. The work is intended to transform the viewer’s perspective of forgettable utilitarian buildings and encourage a closer look at the physical and social impacts of the built environment on our everyday lives.
Architecture has always been my subject, said Yeroshenko. I was hoping to create an absurd, impossible environment that would make the viewer feel displaced, cramped, or desolate, and also to draw a parallel with the real built environment and how it affects us.
Yeroshenko begins by photographing buildings she considers ugly and cluttered in Boston, being careful to omit distracting environmental context. Without preconceiving of the final result, she folds the photos in order to give herself authorship over her surroundings through a series of iterations. Finally, mimicking the style of architectural renderings, Yeroshenko uses artificial light to photograph the final sculptures without contradicting the original light source.
