We recently produced Camberwell College of Art UAL BA graduate Alexander Burgess’ series ‘Shift Command Three’ for The Photographer’s Gallery’s acclaimed exhibition ‘Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed’, presenting Alex’s highly reflective Fujiflex prints on slimline aluminium in a range of sizes using our aluminium mounting service.
‘Shift Command Three’ focuses on the point in which the digital mapping services (from Google, Apple and Microsoft) stop documenting the sea, and instead start generating a new version of it. The top two thirds of the series depict the photographic satellite imagery, while the bottom third depicts the fabricated simulation present on Google of the sea.
The instantly contrasting moment at the perfectly delineated ‘horizon’ splits apart the photographically documented from the completely manufactured. The line both separates the two states, whilst also rendering the image as a new, skewed, landscape. These landscapes are short lived archives of the ever changing digital world, with the generated content becoming increasingly transpicuous of the real.
Limited editions are available, please contact Alexander Burgess on firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and more information.
