Screen explorations



I guess this first monochromatic series called Ada Lovelace created by Stdio are photographs from manifestations produced by some analog device (TV) as they are linked as similar post at butdoesitfloat with "The Luminant Point Arrays" series by Stephan Tillmans, also featured here, into the post, which consists in photographs of tube televisions just in the moment they are switched off.

The Luminant Point Arrays by Stephan Tillmans 

The Luminant Point Arrays show cathode-ray-tube televisions being switched off. The television picture breaks down and creates a structure of light. The images open up a dialogue between the relationship of abstraction and concretion in photography as the breakdown of the television picture describes the breakdown of external reference. The result is self-referential, concrete photography.
