‘Corten’ Steel sheet with laser engraved matt black acrylic
Series of 5
48″ x 48″ each panel
Diptych of rusted steel with a photograph of the steel translated into the Base 64 medium, laser etched into matte acrylic. It references Donald Judd and others who placed a priority on materiality and proportion, indulging in the minimalism of the rusted sheet but a comment on the visceral delight of the metal versus the unintelligible and slick cyber-medium of its transmediation. It changes the modernist signification, as it sits with its Base 64 counterpart, a non-minimalist ‘text’ aligning itself with minimalism by being a vast and almost homogeneous field.
