About The Mechanism

The Mechanism is a melancholic series of black and white photographs that form a sci fi story about contemporary life. Bringing together images made in multiple cities, the work deals with themes of technology, surveillance as well as urban society. Here, Lange attempts to trace the effects of technological developments on human experiences, using architectural tropes to build a narrative loaded with the threats and also promises of the future. Cutting back and forth between close-up views and cityscapes, The Mechanism offers a filmic sequence of photographs that is at once affective and estranging.
