In this collection of archival pigment prints, Scafati manually plays with light refractions as a metaphor to reflect on the politics and poetics of refracting history, destabilizing archetypes, and confronting stereotypes of a culture in flux. In these images, camera lag relates to cultural lag, a term coined by William Fielding Ogburn which focuses on the lag between material — the technology, the infrastructure, the physical things— and the immaterial culture — the rituals, the rules, the institutions.”
