Thomas Albdorf: General View
General View investigates conceptions of a new reality that continuously departs from the indexical referent towards an ever-changing rendering of a world that is yet still routed in the photographic image. Inspired by photographs of Yosemite National Park – one of the most intensely mediated nature sites on earth.
The unintended glitches (as well as the originally intended blurs to conceal faces or car plates) appear as a trace of the algorithmic merging and altering of photographic images without direct human control; an early potential glimpse into, a herald for a post-human understanding of the concept of the image or its redundancy and disappearance.
