Issahary is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores traditional photography and dark-room methods, combined with contemporary developments in the media, such as video.
In order to re-examine the History of Photography and Art, she investigates action and reaction, both chemical and physical and interferes in traditional developing methods. In her unique work in video, Issahary subverts natural processes and documents the resulting chemical reactions on various materials and on the environment. Through exploration of the media, she seeks to re-establishes the historical connection between Art, Science and Technology.
