The work of Benjamin Martinkus, photography technician and adjunct faculty member, is a skeptical yet loving response to the implicit politics, subversive power relations and intoxicating pleasures inherent in an image-based culture. In this exhibition, Martinkus shows a new suite of work comprised of video, imagery and objects both appropriated and fabricated. Together, these works recast the experience of contemporary life as one defined by viewership and imageness.
