Revealing Images


Phillip Maisel is a conceptual artist who explores the relationship between technology, memory and photography. In his latest work, A More Open Place, he examines how we can electronically store a massive amount of photos and view an entire collection of photographs in a matter of seconds.

Each image in the series is produced by a long exposure photograph of a computer screen, while flipping though a photo album on Facebook. The resulting overlapped images reveal new relationships of colour, rhythm and composition, determined by the random order of the original photographs and the speed of the broadband access.
