Anton Kern Gallery, New York This paper investigates the concept of authenticity
as a cultural phenomenon related to physicality,
specifically in relation to aspects of print displayed virtually—
the image, the artist, and the object—
and examines the influence of place—
screen, studio, and museum—
on the construction of an authentic image. What does the digital image, through the interface of the screen, signify today? a collection of mathematical data a signifier for the physical object a signifier for the artist DIGITAL
IMAGE ARTIST ART
OBJECT SUBJECTIVE USER ARTIST I think that's
authentic. IMAGE OBJECT applied to (with some form of authority) AUTHENTICITY:
ENTITLED TO ACCEPTANCE Aligned with a broader fashion for coldly rustic surfaces, the texture of this work functions simply as a respite from information. Eyes tired from constant backlighting gravitate toward images of foxed textiles and Belgian linen, weathered wood and stone. This compensatory effect is not only produced through an encounter with the work in the gallery, but also through the [image on the] screen itself.
