Leanne Eisen

Leanne Eisen is an emerging photo based artist in Toronto, Canada. She studied photography at Ryerson University. Some of her works are based on scanner experiments, creating amazing textures like these.

"Scan began as a creative diversion, but has since become a full-on fixation. I find objects with an interesting combination of surface characteristics, and create compositions by moving them over my scanner bed . Much like darkroom experimentation using burning and dodging, or the placement of objects directly onto the photographic paper's surface to create photograms, each exposure represents a choreographed movement, a moment in time captured on a two-dimensional surface."

"By using trial and error, I reintroduce the possibility of happy accidents into the sterile and precise process of digital imaging. I have worked my way through a collection of scannable curios, from paper grids and greyscales to lights and reflective materials. I am now focusing on CD's and DVD's, thereby introducing a digital storage medium back into the scanning process. Through this exercise, I've learned to exploit the limitations of my scanner, in order to introduce intentional glitches."
