Aitor Ortiz Biography

Beyond the documental photography of architecture, and asserting the dilution factor and transmutation of reality that is associated with photographic representation, Aitor Ortiz works with space, architecture and objects as opening elements to introduce a number of visual and cognitive unknowns. His interest persistently raises a series of dilemmas between representation and interpretation (perception) while establishing a relationship between the content of his images, the physical properties of the materials on which he reproduces his works and their physical position in an exhibition. That's why Aitor Ortiz is trying to establish a broad spectrum of work process and a relationships between photographed places, the conscious and unconscious mechanisms involved in the process of image manipulation: the eye (interpretation, frame, contextualisation ... ), the camera (focus / blur, optical distortion, motion transmission ... ), and the brain (the limitations of an imperfect device in the interpretation of data and empirical skills: experience, association of concepts ... ) that culminate in the exhibition space; where physical experience again transcends the content of his photographs as part of a process of constant interaction between their representation and the viewer's perception.
