new works

temp path ..............mirror(... echo) ................charcode/ nologo ..............pale sensation

temp path, and charcode/nologo combine photographic images from my archive with samples of virus source code. In mirror (narcissism's echo) I have sampled source code from sound software, used to provide an echo effect. Text and image meet at a connotative level by means of a metaphor (ie the connection between a mirror and an echo).

pale sensation is derived from a photograph I took in 1996 at a campaign rally in Pale, Bosnia. The subjects of the photograph are the journalists and camera crews present at the rally; a fact heightened by erasure of details and use of digital filters to make the image appear like a large scale drawing. The cameraman in the forground reminds me of Velazquez by his easel in Las Meninas. The staged media event has become the atelier of our age.

new works 05: source code images

avebury/kournik..1   avebury/kournikova2    avebury/kournikova3    GlobalFree state.buffer

The series avebury/kournikova combines digitally reworked photographs with source code from the Kournikova virus. The resulting images are digitally altered with a series of algorithms to imitate brushstrokes; then printed on canvas and stretched. GlobalFree state.buffer combines a photograph of part of a sufi (Bektashi) monastery in Tetovo, Macedonia with source code from the MyDoom virus.

More examples of the source code series can be found on my website at this link
