Claire Giddings got her first pair of glasses at age seven and spent a great deal of time exploring the world with myopic eyes. She uses digital photography to explore the human experience with technology and the apparatus of visual representation. These images deal with how time can fracture memory and create nostalgia for a person, place or event that only exists through mediated imagery, be it through digital mapping software, blurred images taken in low light, collaged images or photographs of TV/laptop screens and parts of the body.
