New York-based artist Jenny Vogel repurposes appropriated imagery from personal webcams and low-contrast surveillance cameras to create a pensive and poetic take on distance and desire. Set to an abstract narrative of unrequited love and composed primarily of low-resolution images, her video work somehow comes to resemble the dark and moody quality of early film, dramatizing the romantic tone. Her installation at SF Camerawork incudes both moving image media and still photographs.
