Neither Aram Bartholl’s 0,16 nor Dóra Maurer’s Printing till exhaustion are new works, but I happened upon the former last week just after scrolling past the latter, unattributed, on tumblr.
Bartholl uses layers of paper and a light source to create a screen that pixelates shadows of the individual standing behind it. It’s an elegantly simple technique for an interaction that is undoubtedly a nod to the digital. Maurer’s print evokes a similar effect in its repetition to depletion.
For more from Aram Bartholl’s portfolio, stop by his corner of the internet; learn more about Dóra Maurer here and here.
For past “Common Ground” pairings, swing by the archives.
