Sofia Berinstein likes to take photographs with large cameras. She is fascinated by the ontology of everyday objects and their “thingness” and wonders what relationship her photographs bear to the objects or places they index. Sometimes she will walk on trails or drive on highways, documenting paths through the landscape and trying to understand these “objects” by photographing instances on these courses in overwhelming detail. She also uses other media including sculpture and installation to create graphs and experiments around the subjective experience of color. These projects also branch out into her interest in hermeneutics (the study of interpretation) and look into the categorization of structures of meaning in art and their parallels in linguistics. She holds a B.F.A from The Cooper Union.
