Narcissus (2012)
/ (1 of 1)

The image in visual art may be like the reflected image on the surface of still water. If the still surface of the water is disrupted, ripples are created, breaking the illusion of the image and making clear the underlying structure of the effect.

My intention with this work is to use glitch manipulation of digital images to reveal the underlying structure of the image. I’ve chosen Caravaggio’s painting of Narcissus as a motif to reference both the history of visual art and also Marshall McLuhan’s interpretation of the Narcissus myth as it relates to media technology.
