In dialogue with Double Take: drawing and photography, we present works by Jesse McLean, Nicholas O’Brien and the Scandinavian Institute of Computational Vandalism that offer different commentaries on how digital tools complicate the distinction between “drawing” and “photography”.

About

Today’s multimedia software has made it easier to construct and manipulate images through automation, creating a tension between the creativity of the user and the machine. 

In dialogue with Double Take: drawing and photography, we present works by Jesse McLean, Nicholas O’Brien and the Scandinavian Institute of Computational Vandalism that offer different commentaries on how digital tools complicate the distinction between “drawing” and “photography”. 

Working with different digital assets – snapshots of Iraq, Google’s 3D model warehouse and the archives of Asger Jorn - the artists trace new contours through this material, suggesting new ways to read and activate meaning in photographic images today.
