Debased Flowers

Location: Volume Gallery, Chicago IL
Type: Exhibition
Year: 2015
Team: Sina Ozbudun, Isidoro Michan

In conjunction with the development of the mutant flower species exhibited as Base Flowers, are a series of representations that expand the level of detail of the flower surfaces. In these photo-image/renderings, the figure of the flower becomes a landscape or ground upon which to speculate on various levels of articulation. The level of detail in a digital image/model depends upon resolution. The higher the resolution the smoother the surface. Although this could be expected to correspond with a more realistic affect, this slickness often looks fake. Instead, it is often the juxtaposition of multiple resolutions that begins to establish a possible reality. This aspect suggests that at the heart of constructing an aesthetics of realism is abstraction. The abstractions of scale, fidelity, resolution, color, figuration, all bash together to establish an alternative background for the real. As the surface magnifies it shows a continually developing disjunction between areas of articulation.
