"Regenerative Culture Series" (2016)
Total in the series: 8 Digital Prints
Ranging between 4 x 4 and 4 x 3 feet.
The prints consist of images taken from the web using Google.
The images were chosen because they include text that corresponds with a word that is part of a sentence, which in turn is part of a theoretical essay. Some images are altruistic compositions, while others are advertisements and logos among other things.
A specific word or group of words are highlighted in the text of each image in order to create a sentence, which can be read when viewing each composite from left to right. Each of the sentences forming the eight composites are taken from my 2015 essay "Regenerative Culture," which is a critical reflection on network culture.
The composites are designed to present a tension that opens both image and text for a critical reading of the slippage of meaning in the flow of networked production.
