Undisclosed Typologies, explores the dislocation, alteration, and recontextualization of found photographs. Drawn to prints that were initially made to function more as clerical documents than aesthetic objects, Weber seeks photographs that bear traces of recordkeeping, such as numeric and text identifiers. Interested in the presence and process of repetition in the medium of photography, she commonly acquires prints in multiples or groupings to explore the subtleties of variation across both the original images and her alteration of the print surface. Applying a series of straight incisions around the main subject matter, Weber systematically removes sections of emulsion to reveal the paper base beneath the image. The resultant white textured shapes are a circumvention of the image and its original intent, calling attention to the object and reversing the positive and negative relationship between subject matter and background.
