An Immaterial Survey of Our Peers

Brad Troemel’s latest project with Lauren Christiansen is as much an art piece as it is an art show. An Immaterial Survey of Our Peers is a series of images of an exhibition that never took place. The work in the show has been composited into images of an empty gallery. A lot of Troemel’s work, most notably his blog Jogging, raises questions about our physical interaction with art in a digital age. The images below appear to be documentations of physical objects but it is the images themselves that are the final products.

This made me think back to when I posted Ji Lee’s Parallel World and I wondered if the work was the little miniatures themselves or the images of the miniatures. How would it change the context of the work to label Ji Lee a photographer versus an artist who makes sculptures, when in the end we only engage a digitized image either way.
