  • ...In constructing an image, panel-colored like a frame from Ruiz's The Blind Owl and smashed into digital's characteristic flatness, yet endlessly layered by trick imagery of reflections on refractions on colors behind screens and shadows, Broomer & co. attempt to open portals to new worlds. But not another world; rather, they burrow and burrow through this world, the specific mysticism of the glossy-flat digital image and what may lay deep, deep in those high-res pixels.

  • Adopting a radical shift in technique, Broomer’s newest video Pepper’s Ghost eschews film altogether in an effort to create equally spectacular superimpositions with as little technical mediation as possible... Broomer’s decision to unravel his images instead of stacking them atop one another reveals the recursive nature behind this deceptively banal space.
