Garrett Lynch @ Photo Mediations
Photomediations Machine is a curated online space where the dynamic relations of mediation as performed in photography and other media can be encountered, experienced and engaged.
Photomediations Machine adopts a process-based approach to image making by tracing the technological, biological, cultural, social and political flows of mediation that produce photographic objects.
Showcasing theoretical and practical work at the intersections of art and mainstream practices, Photomediations Machine is both an archive of mediations past and a site of production of media as-we-do-not-know-them-yet.

We Entomb Memoir (2015) is a portrait of sorts. It involves a series of process-based actions performed online with appropriated image macro generators, documented with sourced media and hosted by a free weblog service. It is media détournement compiled and combined. Not quite a readymade, unmodified and exhibited within a context different from the one that was intended, it is a postproduction, its creation piggybacking on the work of others from outside the context of art (e.g. design, communication, leisure etc.). The form of the weblog and its contained slideshow create a narrative of relation between the media employed.
