Works in Monochromasters
What happens when you take all the pixels from a work of art and calculate the median color? You get a monochrome which in principle still contains all the information of the original, just evenly distributed. I then print these at the full size of the original work. Are these monochromes new original works, or are they derivatives, ghosts, of the originals? I believe they maintain a spark of essence of the originals.
In November 2023 I participated in the Digital Makers Program at The Hmm in Amsterdam. In December this resulted in a group exhibition ‘Meet the Makers’.
