Wyatt Roderick Buescher is a multidisciplinary photographic artist currently seeking his Graduate Degree in Photography at Parsons, The New School for Design. He was born and raised in Chicago, IL, and he earned his Bachelors in Fine Arts degree at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA with a major in Photography and Filmmaking. Buescher is a practicing fine artist working primarily with the experimentation and repetition of imagery as a learning process, his work often finds itself exploring the indexicality of analog and digital photography as it relates to the tools and ideas that make up the medium itself. He has a separate (albeit often overlapping) social practice that focuses on Educational reform, and questioning ideas of what learning really is in todays world. RB has exhibited in such places as Chicago, New York, and Richmond.
- The Images I create act as templates for larger sculptural installations.
- A broken camera still produces an image.
- These images here are the representational results of attempting to engage with a myriad of questions.
What is indexicality?
Is photography Indexical of Truth?
What do digital Images look like when they become their own objects, instead of acting as representations of other objects?
Does Indexicality matter?
Was Photography hijacked by the idea of representation? So on and so forth.
- Indexicality in photography i would argue doesn’t exist because it’s Indexicality posits itself on photographies inherent promise of representation.
- My question then. What does photography look like without representation? Well i think it reaches the point that its predecessors did. It becomes about its materials and methods, it refers to itself to identify itself.
- I wonder what that looks like?... What's the viewers relationship to the artist?
