A Cunning Array of Stunts
Brian Bartz’s exhibition, Clipping, asks viewers to reflect on the ways computer generated images have integrated into their lives. Informatically distinct from photographic images, computer generated images are a lens by which to view our own relationships to the transparency and opacity of data which we all must navigate daily. The show consists of functioning electronics and 3D printed objects cast into wall-mounted resin sculptures of varying transparency ‒ physical manifestations of intersecting (clipped) 3D meshes. Accompanying these pieces are a video work and essay from which these objects conceptually emerge.
