The coded image


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.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.
