A severe modification of the MS DOS game Wolfenstein 3D (1992) deconstructs it into a hyper-minimalist black-and-white maze of geometric forms and pixel patterns.

For the month of March, I’ll be guest curating the Echo Park Film Center‘s FB page. The theme for March is MYST:

MYST
Identifying with the 1993 computer adventure game MYST, this program of contemporary moving image-based art mazes through aberrant places and mystifying spaces, highlighted by digital simulacra that employ new technology to render regressive aesthetics inspired by the nascency of the early virtual. (AR)

MYST continues every monday of March. Follow along on the Echo Park Film Center’s FB page.

Clement Valla : “Wrapped terracotta neck-amphora”

Clement Valla : Wrapped terracotta neck amphora storage jar

“Wrapped terracotta neck-amphora (storage jar)”
by Clement Valla

Wrapped Terracotta neck-amphora (storage jar) is a sculpture that is neither an object nor an image. Valla used digital 3D capture to reproduce a 7th Century BC Greek amphora on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. To highlight the artifacts produced by computer vision the completed reproduction is broken down into its constituent parts: a flat image wrapped around a 3D volume. The resulting sculpture echoes the packing of objects for storage and shipping, transitory moments when only an object’s image is accessible. The image ends up serving as surrogate for the sculpture underneath.”
