Inspired by commercial photography, surveillance technologies, and experimental sound performance, Alex Waber’s Failpoint project examines the camera’s ability to see. Through strategic underexposure, the artist “fails” at taking a photograph and instead recovers the image in post-production. The resulting picture is made of digital noise, in which new patterns and textures emerge. Some “fail points” are unrecognizable, others take on an almost vintage aesthetic, and both ultimately reduce the world to a unique mood and texture.
