Appreciation towards Daniel Kukla for providing the following description:

2012年的三月,Daniel Kukla获得了位于南加州的美国国家公园约书亚树公园管理处批准的艺术家居住权。在居住期间,艺术家花了很多时间观察低索诺兰沙漠和高莫哈韦沙漠地区的交界处。通过一系列的徒步和驾驶旅行,窥见了交界处独特的生态系统环境。为了将这种独特的交汇地形抓取,艺术家独步到旷野,用艺术家的大画框将环境元素捕获,然后在将其陈列在环境中。鲜明的色彩和肌理对比经由环境自身的平面视觉和同步时间画面产生。

艺术家用摄影表达我们自然世界的不断变化,批判性的深刻揭示当今社会与环境的关系,通过美丽和无幻,严谨和实验彰显自己的思辨立场。

In March of 2012, I was awarded an artist’s residency by the United States NationalPark Service in southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park. While staying in thePark, I spent much of my time visiting the borderlands of the park and the areas wherethe low Sonoran desert meets the high Mojave desert. While hiking and driving, I caughtglimpses of the border space created by the meeting of distinct ecosystems injuxtaposition, referred to as the Edge Effect in the ecological sciences. To documentthis unique confluence of terrains, I hiked out a large mirror and painter’s easel into thewilderness and captured opposing elements within the environment. Using a singlevisual plane, this series of images unifies the play of temporal phenomena, contrasts ofcolor and texture, and natural interactions of the environment itself.

Daniel Kukla — Artist Statement

My artistic practice is informed by the joint intersection of my work as a photographer,and my formal training in the biological and anthropological sciences. I work at thejuncture of these disciplines, focusing in on capturing evidence as images that have thepower to articulate our ever-changing relationship with the natural world. In both scienceand photography the act of collection is universal. Whether specimen or subject, thecollection process allows one to categorize, control, and critically describe one’sfindings, and contribute them to the collective work of others in the field. I find that thisprocess allows me to engage my audience with contemporary social andenvironmental themes, ranging from the commonplace to the esoteric. As a calculatedinvestigation, my projects document and bear witness to important social, political andecological issues; through highlighting the beautiful and the bizarre, and retaining theprecision and experimentation of the scientific perspective, I offer a vantage point onthese subjects that can destabilize, challenge and provoke.
