- About the work
Machine-woven tapestry is a way of exploring the possibilities and limitations of the photographic image for Miriam Bäckström. Her aim was to create a work it would be impossible to take in at a single glance. The properties of the image change with the degree of distance from the work, such as the possibility of perceiving both the motif and the texture of the surface of the image at one go. Bäckström had the camera pan across a room covered in mirrors that had figures wearing reflective clothing inside it. She is interested in the way we use the camera as a mirror with memory.
