“Die andere Seite” is a project focused on the collection and accumulation of images rescued from the Internet, and selected not in terms of a pre-established logic but rather with a desire to deconstruct the rules of fotogenia. Following the concept of “frame,” the artist extracts images from their contexts of production to question the way in which they have been documented.
Dexter Sinister, 2017, silkscreen print on matte coated paper Burgo Satin 115 gsm, 100 x 70 cm, limited edition of 50 numbered and signed copies. Produced for the exhibition “…Meet the Tetracono”, 2017. BUY NOW
The Tetracono is a commercial product and art edition designed in 1965 by Bruno Munari for Danese Milano. It is an austere 15-cm black steel cube housing four aluminum cones, each painted half-red and half-green, and designed to spin at four distinct speeds on an 18-minute cycle completing a slow transition from green to red. Its function according to Munari is to “show forms while they are in the process of becoming.”
This screenprint uses the 4-color Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black printing process to capture 4 distinct moments in this 18-minute cycle in one composite image. The Cyan plate is taken from 3 minutes into the 18-minute cycle. The Magenta plate is taken from 6 minutes into the 18-minute cycle. The Yellow plate is taken from 9 minutes into the 18-minute cycle. The Black plate is taken from 12 minutes into the 18-minute cycle. Printing all four plates on top of each other produces a kind of “time sandwich,” the impossible image of the Tetracono as it changes.
