In the installation of google maps mumbled 2020 (https://google-maps-mumbled.com/
), the images are screenshots from Google Maps made into customized prints on everyday accessories, familiar from daily life, which include a window that jumps off drywall, cellular blinds allowing light to shine through, and rugs arranged in a line. However, on these 'standard' objects, each of the images look non-standard, with a dissonant quality that might at first remind you of a computer programming glitch. You would not be wrong to make that connection, for on a screen desktop that is part of this installation there are several folders waiting to be opened, including a folder named "black polygon." It contains hundreds of errors in the Google Maps algorithm transformed into black shapes that look like alien script form. A huge black geometric abstraction is printed on the wall, which itself takes on a simulated feel, as if it is a real scenario featuring one piece of screenshot image.
Participating in DY3CORPIA and showing up a selected part of my work at About Light gallery, the pieces are physical but missing bodies. These print-on images are created, transformed, and distorted by data, algorithms, or technology, then are formalized in blinds, windows, off-walls. They seem to close our reality and rip it now; however, we're not meant to see them.
