Image Transfers

Image Transfers – Apple, Pear and Banana 
Image Transfers – Apple, Avocado and Lemon
Artist: Anne de Vries
Year: 2012
Size: 160 x 70 cm
Material: Print on photo paper

 


About: These two digital prints present their own production tear down, starting as a still-life of supermarket fruit captured by a digital camera, the image travels through the lens, chip, wire, computer components, software, etc. all the way to the printer, until its materialization as ink on paper that is hung with hooks and clips to the wall. The deceptive simplicity of this arrangement is overcoded by an informational panorama that renders visible the circumstances and locations of the chain of production in relation to which the fruit are the end-product eventuations. The inscriptions include the name and address of the retailer and the first responsible production companies involved and are superimposed in small type over the still-life image. Lining up the dynamic roots of this art piece production in today’s global economy.

Title: FORECAST
Artist: Anne de Vries
Year: 2011
Material: HD video projection
Size: 3 meter x 135 cm projection screen
Length: 5 minute Loop
Sound: James Whipple (aka M.E.S.H.)
Text: Parts from Bertrand Russell’s ‘A.B.C. of Relativity’ Philosophical consequences.


About: ‘Forecast’ is a computer-generated video in which the camera is panning through photographs of a blue sky with clouds photographed over Amsterdam. There is a slow voice that takes us through specific segments of Bertrand Russell’s book “ABC of Relativity” in which Russell explicates the differences between actuality and perception. Addressing relativity theory and concepts of space-time. Halfway through the video, the reading of Bertrand Russell’s text turns into music, leading the viewer into a more associative experience.

Air Gap Hold On

Air Gap Hold On

Year: 2012
Material: Stainless steel, Digital print on a towel, Digital print on plastic.
Size: 117 cm x 60 x 8 cm

 

Air gap (plumbing)
An air gap, as it relates to the plumbing trade, is the unobstructed vertical space between the water outlet and the flood level of a fixture. A simple example is the space between a wall mounted faucet and the sink rim (this space is the air gap). Water can easily flow from the faucet into the sink, but there is no way that water can flow from the sink into the faucet without modifying the system. This arrangement will prevent any contaminants in the sink from flowing into the potable water system by siphonage and is the least expensive form of backflow prevention.

 

Air gap (networking)
An air gap or air wall is a security measure often taken for computers and computer networks that must be extraordinarily secure. It consists of ensuring that a secure network is physically isolated from insecure networks, such as the public Internet or an insecure local area network. Frequently the air gap is not completely literal, such as via the use of dedicated cryptographic devices that can tunnel packets over untrusted networks while avoiding packet rate or size variation. Even in this case, there is no ability for computers on opposite sides of the air gap to communicate.

Katanga Bub

Title: Katanga Bub
Artist: Anne de Vries

Year: 2011
Size: 35.43 x 56.69 inch
Material: Mobile devices glued on a light box displaying a press image of the Katanga mines in the Kongo, rephotographed under water.

About: The extreme ends of the mobile device industry are brought together in ‘Katanga Bub’. It is based on a press image depicting the landscape and workers of Katanga, in The Democratic Republic of Congo – an area mined for many minerals like tungsten and coltan, which have been crucial for the manufacture of mobile devices. For this work, the press image of the Katanga mines has been re-photographed underwater and set within a freestanding display unit. as water ripples and bubbles float over the surface, distort- ing the scene underneath, the screens of numerous mobile phones show clearer details of the same view of the Katanga mine. The elemental earthy origins of the mines are (re)connected with the liquefied luxuriance of global technology commodities and their marketing aesthetics, to express the easy exchange of information through these devices. This work fuses two opposing but connected ends of the story: on one hand, the mobile devices help spread knowledge and raise global awareness, with the false promise of engendering a better world. On the other hand, while the economy of “rare earth” props up the problematic social and political infrastructures of the Democratic Republic of Congo, it also reveals the recursive relationships between matter and information underwritten by the move from production to the product; from raw material to data generation.
