Low-Res Pixel Bed


Art has always been driven by technology and the new digital age is already accounting for radical shifts in the production of art, as well as ways in which it is consumed. This work attempts to illuminate the grey area between the digital world and the analog world and also to push the boundaries of conventional media. With the advent of smart phones, multiple computers per person, GPS, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, robotics, and a multitude of other sophisticated technologies, the proliferation of digital media and devices is ever increasing, as is the hazy boundary of separation between the two. This piece exists in the analog world but references and mimics digital data in order to create a visual feedback loop with the intent of highlighting and alluding to this ever-increasingly digitally saturated world.
