As seen in History of Photography Remix, currently on view in Out of the Ordinary, Kota Ezawa’s work addresses the conception of history as strings of images that have entered our collective consciousness. Using slide projections, animated video, lightboxes, collages, and prints, Ezawa reconsiders art history and popular culture. Migrating representations between mediums, Ezawa’s work questions whether information should be accepted at face value, opening it up to interpretation and personalization.
