The Photograph Gallery
In her work, which scans quite a lot of mediums, together with embroidery, discovered objects, and portray, Bay Space artist Lauren DiCioccio investigates the bodily/tangible great thing about mass-produced media. As conventional media, particularly newspapers and magazines, however even writing pads and workplace papers turn into out of date, she wonders, “What is going to occur once we not contact info?”
In her Shade Codification Dot Drawings, DiCioccio creates paintings out of printed journal pages, using a type of shade-pushed Morse Code technique. The result’s a media-induced pointillism.
Right here’s the way it works: • She lays a sheet of frosted mylar over a magazine web page. • She assigns a colour to each letter (numbers are shades of grayscale), and applies tiny dots of paint over each character on the web page in response to the colour-code.
She says, “Making the work is lots like fixing a cryptogram and the result’s a legible blur of dots within the type of the article’s format, a sort of Braille for the colour-inclined.”
