Installation View Or: Making History by Pixel
A Media Essay by Tim Roseborough
New York, NY - Artist Tim Roseborough explores the practice of digitally enhancing the documentation of an art exhibit in "Installation View," a media essay and exhibition at Artifact gallery. The exhibition will feature a written essay and instructional video.
For the gallery installation, Roseborough used digital software to enhance photographic documentation of the very space in which the exhibition is held, highlighting the differences between the reality of the space and the enhanced photographs, which include virtual artwork displayed on the walls. The video installation in the gallery documents the artist’s enhancement process.
The gallery exhibition will be accompanied by an interactive Web site, INSTALLATIONVIEW.COM, which will incorporate the writing, video and images made for the project.
"If an art exhibition is mounted and no one witnesses it, did it occur? I argue that a show is better viewed on the Internet, and through a set of perfectly tuned images," says the artist.
