(Archival Digital Prints, Web Project)
A web project and series of archival digital prints. (Exhibited previously as large archival prints on canvas as seen below) All images have been appropriated from websites that allow private, not-for-profit individuals to post images of themselves.
We can all agree that the overwhelming majority of the symbols of any language are arbitrarily mapped. That is, there is no real connection between object and symbol (Is there anything inherently “dog” about a dog?). What we can probably not agree on is what exactly a symbol may (in this case, a word) denote. Moreover, even if we happen to share a specific definition, our varied technical aptitudes and resources may severely limit our ability to effectively represent our concept.
