Pete Fleming (b. 1987), lives and works in Seattle, USA. Approaching the digital image from a materialist position, his work engages with objects and processes that interweave virtual and physical space. Integral to this practice is his concept of the photograph as word-image-touch-object, a term that is intended to articulate the materiality of a photograph as it moves between servers, fingertips, light emissions, and feelings.
