About her work Julianne says: This work has multiple layers to it, physically and conceptually. At first look the images are very beautiful renditions of flora with some very overt use of computer editing softwares to degrade them. Initially inspired by attempting to understand where computer vision falls apart, in hopes of the viewer questioning their own sight, these images are thrown through algorithms such as focus stacking, purposefully used counter-intuitively to break down visual planes. As I continued to work through the images, I found myself continually drawn specifically to flowers and thus the abstraction of them in photographic space; through this process I realized the impetus to do so was a mourning process over the death of someone very close to me. Thus, began my digital renditions of momento-mori still lives in which I play with 2D3D objects in space, and the ways in which the pixels blend together.
