Untitled (zero days exploits)
Nuances of emerald-green bring stillness and unity to the otherwise dynamic and turbulent composition of Untitled (zero-days exploits). As the title hints, we might be looking at the disruption caused by a computer system's vulnerability. The bug shows in the repetition and split of screens throughout the picture. Distortions in the image appear as part of Chris Dorland's process. The artist manipulates print and digital media using a mix of outdated and digital hardware – scanners and printers, amongst others. In doing so, he provides a tangible record to information that would otherwise disappear as fast as today's media cycles allow. The result is a work where both context and aesthetics become abstract.
