Fixed by Rachel Phillips as Madge Cameron

Treadwell Press is pleased to announce a newly expanded publication of FIXED, featuring the work of artist Rachel Phillips' alter-ego Madge Cameron, a reclusive librarian born in San Francisco in 1935. Phillips writes about Cameron:

"Working to digitize the extensive photographic holdings of the private library where she works, Cameron discovered accidentally that by moving the photograph while the image was being recorded, she could separate the image into its color channels, resulting in a strange 3D effect. At first irritated with what she saw as failed work, Cameron eventually came to embrace the 'process of interruption,' as she puts it. 'I came to see the process as a metaphor for what I do as an archivist; each piece becomes a visual cross-reference of itself.'"
