From the earliest days of the history of photography, there have been determined efforts to expand the medium into physical space and three dimensions. Devices such as the stereoscope, 3D movie glasses, and virtual reality headsets have offered ever more realistic three-dimensional photographic experiences, but these have largely remained in the domain of popular entertainment, intended to “trick” the eye into seeing a sculptural object where only a flat image (or a digital image) truly exists.

Recently however, a number of contemporary artists have begun exploring the potential for three-dimensional photography in ways that embrace and revel in the material qualities of photography itself – its palpable physicality, rather than its representational or symbolic capacities. This exhibition presents work by three contemporary Canadian artists – Karin Bubaš, Natalie Hunter, and Karen Zalamea – who each explore the potential for photographic images to be spatial, experiential, and material, but who do so in different ways and to different ends.
