Drawing from test patterns used in video media, this project replicates the aesthetic of LCD monitors using multicolored grids. Moiré patterns emerge from the network of millions of layered lines, which resemble the distortions that are common in screen-based media. I’m interested in the process of translating imagery through various distributions methods; the process of printing a digital-born image to paper in itself creates a type of filter and alters the data encapsulated in the form. By highlighting and exaggerating deformity, this work emphasizes the role that technology plays in creating aesthetic sensibilities and serves as a reminder that all images include some type of interference.
The image was originally created for the German magazine Fount. A different version was later implemented as part of an online exhibition through Alastria Press.
This piece was made for an exhibition about transparency organized by the A2 Collective in the Netherlands. My contribution is a digital image made in Photoshop that includes the preamble to the Trans-Pacific Partnership reproduced one trillion times in various colors.
My work is pictured on the left in the above photo, which was provided by the A2 Collective.
