Victoria Pidust's work explores the idea of mirroring our world with a different perception and creating a shift in reality in the viewer. Her intensive connection and engagement with painting not only made the artist think about possibilities of abstraction, but also how to transfer them to photography. For the iPhone zooming series, Pidust captures extremely zoomed-in image sections with her iPhone, in which calculated, algorithmic parts of the iPhone's "in-camera" programs become visible. Losses of quality caused by the zooming process are accordingly compensated or completed by independently generated information.
