From Above and Below features twelve years of Harper's photographs and video stills exploring perception, technology and the night sky. Her experimental images of the moon, stars and sun draw on scientific and conceptual uses of photography to illuminate the medium's contradictory ability both to verify empirical evidence and to create poetic connections between our environment and ourselves.

Harper's pictures challenge the seamless surface of photographs, and shift our attention to a relationship between the camera and the way we perceive photographs. Throughout From Above and Below the camera impacts the record it keeps, which is ultimately a visual dialogue transcribed by the image-maker and the camera together. This relationship is a metaphor for the myriad ways technology and art affect and ultimately facilitate our understanding of our surroundings.

Harper's contemporary art practice expands notions of photography and pushes scientific uses of photography into the realm of poetry. Artist and Professor Catherine Wagner says, "From Above and Below reminds us of the necessity to engage in the act of 'wonder.' Sharon Harper's photographs of constructed observations read like poems of knowledge."
