Hillary Atiyeh Clements at Camerawork Gallery

Portland, Oregon photographer Hillary Atiyeh Clements’ exhibit, “Chaos Theory”, is a new series of black and white double exposures. Atiyeh Clements notes, “Chaos Theory is a branch of science based on the law of sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Rooted in quantum theory and relativity its main premise states that small changes in initial conditions can result in vast differences in the final outcome. This theory includes concepts such as Fractals, the Butterfly Effect and the Fibonacci sequence. Nature finds a way and adapts to its environment in the simplest form even though the underlying system may seem complex.” Reaching back to her roots as a photographer Atiyeh Clements approached this series of in-camera multiple exposures thinking about symbiotic relationships and looking for patterns in nature while enjoying the spontaneous and unpredictable outcome of this process.
