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.
