Hannah Smith Allen
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Kensington



ARTIST STATEMENT: For the past decade, I have created artwork about war. Whether I photograph a Revolutionary War site or contemplate how photography mediates my understanding, as an American civilian, of recent events in Iraq and Afghanistan, I consider how images of war shape our psyche and our history. In my recent work, I have abandoned the battle site altogether and, instead, consider how images of violence and war permeate our fantasies and imaginations.

In Scheduled Implosions, I consider the temporality of our constructed landscape by photographing media coverage of building demolitions. I shoot instant film, re-crop the original video frames, and employ long exposures in order to make visible the tensions between still and moving pictures. My new images offer ghostly visions of a collapsing world and point to our collective fascination with violence. They also allude to recent political events, such as the failure of Wall Street, the recent housing crash, and international conflict and war.
