Adam Ekberg is an artist who creates constructed still life photographs exploring ephemeral occurrences. As described by Conveyor Magazine: “Ekberg locates his process in the crosshairs of photography and performance.” These seemingly simple images often transform mundane objects through poetic visual associations. Ekberg’s humble events may exist for mere moments, but often require elaborate planning and production outside the photographic frame. The artist has wryly discussed his private, staged happenings in oxymoronic terms, calling them “minor spectacles.”
