Statement from the Artist:
Lindsay Buchman is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores image-making and writing through print and lens-based media, artist books, and installation. Pivoting between text and image, she is primarily concerned with the intersections of language, intersubjectivity, and site. Through forms of mediation, she interrogates the role of seeing and its relationship to meaning—a subtext grounded in the disorientation of sight. Sunstruck contains archival photographs and writing triangulating land and seasickness, the horizon line, and the language of distance and desire. Including a 1000-word essay, 49 figures from 1916-2018, and notes on provenance, the publication engages the physiological nature of disorientation while calling into question the mutability of time, photography, and sight.
