Kiera Reese is interested in a machine that sees. The camera. After earning her MFA from Lesley University College of Art and Design in 2015, Reese examines the qualities of the mechanical sight. Technology’s increasing presence in our lives blurs the divide between a digital and physical reality. Reese probes this compression of realities with the camera, using the camera’s vision as her own to reconsider what is seen.
