The Strangeness of This Idea
In her first book The Strangeness Of This Idea, replete with manipulated digital collages juxtaposed with straight images, Kate Steciw assertively compels viewers out of passive complacency. In this era of rapidly fleeting and shifting imagery, where the boundaries between real and manufactured are blurred, Steciw challenges us to stop and ponder things in our world, like the red flowers on the cover, at least for a moment. Quickly evolving technologies are changing the way we think about and perceive the world around us. Steciw’s impressive first book invites us along for the exciting ride.
