Flash: Job Piston


California Museum of Photography

November 9, 2013 - February 22, 2014



Flash: Job Piston is the presentation of six works from "Reds," 2012–13, a series of photograms made by pressing light-sensitive darkroom paper to the surface of a glowing laptop screen, then, as the artists describes, “dipping the pixels into a chemical bath.” This groundbreaking process produces intimate yet provocative red portraits, each one unique, which hover in a state both analog and digital.

 



Flash! features recent photo-based works by contemporary artists and is presented on the third floor of the CMP. Flash: Job Piston is the third exhibition in the series.
