CV

Tetzlaff’s practice looks at ways in which intangible phenomena–such as pressure, gravity and light–can both mark and be revealed through material. Using photomedia-based methods alongside simple objects his work draws out and manifests small complexities of our environment: moments when light is blunt or sharp, or when stones relate their geological speed and fluidity.
