I'm interested in the concept of reality, how it is perceived and filtered, and how it is in constant fluctuation between what was and what will be.

I'm intrigued and fascinated by the technical aspects of the photographic medium, and in my work I seek to experiment with and push the boundaries of conventional photographic technique. In my process of mechanical experimentation (in camera) combined with digital experimentation in the post processing phase, I want to free the photograph from the constraints of documenting reality as we usually know it. Traditionally, a photograph captures a single moment in time. In my work, I try to expand that instant, by litterally letting movement draw itself into the picture. This way, the instant can stretch itself towards infinity, and the picture becomes a living scene that you can enter, leave, and come back to again.

In my latest series PERCEPTIONS (2016-2018) I go work more physically than before. On some works I have sewn graphic patterns with a thin thread. In that way, I get another break of the light in the subject. You can not see the stitching immediately, but feel a discrepancy in the light of the photograph, - the light of the room does not match the way the light falls into the image. I have also made some very large photographs in the series: Perception of Darkness. These big and very dark photographs are subsequently cut neatly in many thousand small squares and then reassembled as a mosaic. In the this series, I'm experimenting with challenging the perception of the image.

My TREESCAPES (2014-2016) project explores the Danish forest as a place of contemplation of both Nature and of human experience of life. To me, it’s interesting how the forest encompasses all stages of life at once and just next to each other. There’s birth, there’s death and there’s everything in between.

Visually, the forest offers an incredibly detailed scene, minutely composed of different surfaces, colors, sounds and scents, all in motion simultaneously. It’s a synesthetic experience.

My SHOOL OF PINK (2014-2016) project is a series from an abandoned public school on the tiny Danish island Femø. The tightly composed images are rendered in a specific pink-rosy-peach color scheme, which brings the empty rooms into another dimension of hope, positivity and optimism.

Alongside her art practice, Sofie Pihl (1980) has studied Art History at Copenhagen University. She has exhibited in several places in the Denmark and abroad including at KP 14 in Aarhus, SEE Exhibition Space in New York and Exposure Photography Award at the Louvre in Paris. Sofie is a trained classical musician, and has completed her studies at the Conservatory of Music in Bologna, Italy. She studied at the Royal Danish Academy of the Arts’ School of Architecture in 2002-2005, and has since then worked as a fine art / and freelance photographer.

All works are delivered in addition to the sizes indicated also in the size 150 x 210 cm
