The coded image
The Coded Image features five artists wrestling with the increasing instability of images in the present information age. More and more of the images we encounter today are mediated by electronic technologies—from big screen televisions to smart phones, from mass media to social media. The distribution of this electronic content involves a process of breaking down images to streams of data that are later reconstituted on our screens. This inherently destructive/reconstructive process challenges the perceived stability and continuity that were early distinctives of photography. March 7-March 26, 2015.
