Oz Van Rosen
Oz Van Rosen is an artist based in New York and Southampton. Using the underlying technology of photography, her art is created by randomly corrupting, bending and destroying digital data in an image to create an unpredictable aesthetic. By turning pixels into paintbrushes, she pushes the boundaries of photography into new visual possibilities, creating unique images that defer to the whim of technology. In this Beyond Photography interview, Oz describes her work as Abstract Techspressionism. Oz studied art at the New York School of the Arts.
