Today in Stranger Suggests

posted by on November 29 at 10:00 AM

(ART) Which is a fact: a photograph or a sculpture? Um, a sculpture. A photograph is an opinion. But Roy McMakin has set himself the task of building photographs that are facts. He took hundreds of photographs of a single found domestic object—like a green dresser, or a Dutch oven—and piled them on top of each other, flattening the image so that it has no traditional three-point perspective and is true to scale. The subjects have been liberated from the constraints of photographic vision. They’ve become actual. (James Harris Gallery, 309A Third Ave S, 903-6220. 11 am—5 pm, free.) JEN GRAVES
