Tate's work is an exploration of visual language and process. In a sense it is an examination of how we see, what we see, what merits being seen, and how images function in contemporary visual culture. Frequently the photographic image is still viewed as a mechanical reproduction of reality. In this paradigm, the photograph functions not as an autonomous object loaded with historical and functional contexts,but rather as a conceptually transparent representation of a reproduced reality.
This ongoing research represents a shift away from the context of photograph as mechanical reproduction and is an acknowledgement of the image-maker as the mediator of sight, as well as an exploration of process and practice in contemporary image viewing and production. These images are a continuation of ongoing research / meta-photographic critique concerning the visual and conceptual processes of image comprehension.
