Known for developing the "photo-object" genre (artworks which fused the disciplines of photography and sculpture), that exploration has been furthered with a multiple series of what can be seen as perhaps the ultimate "photo-object". The ephemeral nature of the universal jpeg has been addressed, and the default jpeg icon has been solidified into a standard image surrogate.
This ceramic multiple edition is entitled "_____.jpg" and was fabricated in China, in an edition of 125, each signed, numbered and dated.
