This image is made up 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.
