[“Found at eye level in public places, many images are behind glass or plastic, providing a barrier that allows the viewer to see, but never to reach the object of their aspirations. The barrier is optically imperfect, delivering bits of one merchant’s message transparently, while reflectively delivering bits of other messages creating an entirely improvisational mise-en-scène, recontextualizing the messages and the environment. When presented on a backlit medium like a computer screen or transparency, a new spectacle is created by transmitted light that draws in the viewer like a moth to a flame”]
-Chris Kitze, from his exhibition “The Electric Image” now on display at Powerhouse Arena. Really cool and worth seeing in person.
