In dialogue with Perspectives on Collage, The Wall will feature projects looking at photography in relation to the tools and practices of digital post-production.
Originally disseminated in blog form, Jon Rafman’s Brand New Paint Job is a project where famous paintings are used to wallpaper amateur 3D models collected from Google 3D Warehouse. The project moves through a succession of hyper-real, lobbies, office spaces, cars and lounge rooms using a virtual camera. The resulting images reference the world of interior design magazines, 3D gaming, social media mashups and synthetic photography. Rafman will be re-working the project as BRAND NEW BRAND NEW PAINT JOB specifically for The Wall.
The Wall is supported by
