Framed Picture

screen print on canvas
90 x 90 cm

Framed Picture, a cliché of an artwork, a copy of a copy, represents the constant streams of discourse that impose ideas of value and meaning from the offline world into the online, distracting or setting unrealistic expectations of what technology is and what it stands for. The digital presents the illusion of a self-productive domain, infinite, capable of creating value without expenditure, unlike the reality of limited resources, time, and expense that otherwise govern all forms of value and production. The imperfect rendered image of a traditional landscape painting, distorted by the materiality of an analogue print, alludes to the once utopic ambitions of technology.
