Installation view: Andrew Norman Wilson presented by DOCUMENT, Chicago
DOCUMENT presents Andrew Norman Wilson’s photo-based works from the following bodies of works. "The Scanops," 2012 are a collection of “anomalies” from Google Books the artist collected while being employed at Google: images in which software distortions, the imaging site, or the hands of the Google employees doing the scanning are visible. "The Kodak" works, 2019 are prints which illustrate the tools that show the technologies of Kodak, digitally rendered: a printing station from 1982, and Steven Sasson’s first prototype of the digital camera, the Promethean device which would demolish one image-making paradigm and erect another.
