John Houck: ij

Art, Photography Free

Houck uses repetitive computerised coding to question the lack of individualism in our current global society. The former software programmer’s mesmerising works from the ‘Aggregates’ series aren’t salvaged crumbled printer errors, but are actually created by an algorithm the American artist devised to solve the endless possible combinations colour can be inscribed in a grid. The large sheets of multi-coloured graph paper are then printed, creased, and photographed multiple times and ultimately become repetitions of their former self. But it’s the slight differences that individuate them.
