Part of AUTHENTICITY IS DEAD, LONG LIVE AUTHENTICITY!

Icon

Oliver Laric (AU 2016)

Icon is based on a 3D scan of a damaged icon in Utrecht’s St. Martin’s Cathedral. Laric 3D-scanned and made publicly available this church icon, suggesting a change in direction for image-making. One in which bootlegs, copies and remixes increasingly usurp ‘originals’ in an age of digital production. The work is a print of the 3D scan, and exemplifies Laric’s ideas of image hierarchies and of an authentic or -in Walter Benjamins’ terms- aural ‘original’ image. Produced in cooperation with M&H 3D Reverse.
