Studio 3

Luke Moldof is a Providence and New York based artist, currently focused on sound and photography. For the past few years his work has been largely made up of unedited and unprocessed location recordings, acknowledging the tropes of “field recording” as a genre, seeking to operate outside them or to address them in uncommon ways. He uses similar methods of exploration and critique to produce photographic works, in an attempt to highlight the consonance and dissonance between these two practices.
