Mirror-Scan: Ask Siri What is 0 ÷ 0, 2015, pigment print, 30 x 36 inches
In the Mirror-Scan: Ask Siri What is 0 ÷ 0 series, perplexing prints depicting high resolution scans of mirrors reveal stark black shapes with confounding optical effects: flattened shadows, echoed scratches, tiny identical-twin particles.
Due to its mechanical limitations, a scanner cannot capture its own image while scanning a mirror, instead generating an empty footprint of space. Here, the limits of mechanical reproduction are turned against the technological apparatus, using a minimalist strategy to overturn the reductive narrative of minimalism.
Generating an expressionistic space, this process creates a sanctuary for poetic intuition even amidst a savagely material world where a thing's value is determined solely by its usefulness.
