Bridget DeFranco's work focuses on the representational nature of images, particularly in the depiction of nonhuman life. She considers representation as a kind of measurement—a proof of existence, a clean containment of the ephemeral. What might otherwise be left unseen becomes fixed within a new world. Bridget's work aims to intercept this transformation, to build worlds from images lost to their own.
