Irene Mamiye Collection

Irene Mamiye is a New York-based artist working within the intersections of photography, sculpture, video, and new media. Since 2010, her practice has centered around the impact and possibilities created by our online image environment’s impact upon both the meaning and materiality of photography.  By amassing archives of online images, altering and stretching the automated processes of digital photography, and utilizing virtual reality, the artist delimits her perspective to test the possibilities and tyrannies of our image-saturated world. Her aim is to illuminate and abstract the changing relationship between artistic process and output and extend both the material and philosophical idea of photography into new media technological realities.
