CODE AND NOISE / Today’s Ideology Series
Presented as part the CODE and NOISE Exhibition. Curated by Christine Duval.
The Today's Ideology series is a set of continuous, generative collages created from all of the editorial photos in a single day of The New York Times. The images are shuffled and then obliquely drawn, one at a time. Each work in the series is made on the day referenced in the title from the images from that day's paper. This work flattens the editorial hierarchy and reduces the significance of individual images to reshape the experience of reading the images.
Today's Ideology is influenced by the history of ideas that started with the development of perspective in the visual arts as a shift to an objective and mathematical way of representing space. Today's Ideology pushes contemporary photographs away from the pretense of objectivity and into a state where the viewer is more active in exploring and interpreting the images.
