LOOK My enlarged glitchéd photograph printed on vinyl is part of my career-long investigation into the ontology of photography. The image was captured from a portable roadside sign and altered with the iPhone app Glitché. The sign challenges the viewer on several levels. When viewed from a distance, the letters are seen as beautiful shapes and colors. Simultaneously, the text can be interpreted as an invitation to look at the artworks presented inside Liliana Bloch Gallery. When viewed closeup, the shapes and colors become slightly blurred and pixelated; thereby, speaking to the phenomenon of photography and the process of digital printing. Freely moving between photography, sculpture, and installation, my projects are based on narratives about current or past events, and often include familiar objects and words. All of my projects constitute an ongoing exploration of photographic indexicality, the archive, and the frame. My sign is the newest edition of Liliana Bloch Gallery's URBANO public art program. URBANO was started in 2014 with the intention to educate and promote the understanding of contemporary art by featuring selected artworks and experimental interdisciplinary projects outside the confines of a traditional gallery space.
