reception/reproduction is a take on the visual experience of fine art in the digital age.
Decades ago the only possibility to actually see famous works of art was to visit the respective museums personally. With the invention of photography the need to stand in front of an artwork in person diminished and art became accessible even for those who couldn’t afford a trip to a foreign country.
Today this gap is closed even more as digital reproduction and the establishing of internet communication made it possible to see relevant artworks from one’s home desk. What, on the other hand, became lost is the habit of not only seeing a flat copy of an artwork but to experience it in the context of a museum or gallery and in other dimensions of perception as well. On the internet, pieces of art therefore became a mere shadow of themselves, reduced to a single dimension. Further obstructions arise when the digital reproduction is flawed because of issues like data size or wrong color correction.
This series strives to exaggerate those problems visually and explore the faultiness of digital reproduction by adding another layer of perception to it.
