Stereocollision - contemporary stereo cards
Click thumbnails for expanded view.
Set of 15 hand-made stereo cards, each with descriptive text by the artist printed in letter press on the verso, with box and antique viewer. This piece is number 4 in an edition of 5. The "Stereocollision" series blends together imagery as well as texts from early 20th century stereographs to present an immersive, three-dimensional experience of a contemporary globalized world.
From the artist's statement: "To make the 'Stereocollision' series I digitally mixed images and text appropriated from antique stereographs to present composite scenes of globalization and power. The installation invites viewers into a Victorian era parlor setting to read the cards and enjoy their 3D imagery from a point of view within troubled western luxury and dominance. The scenes and their subverted authoritative narration draw parallels to a colonial context while further mixing cultural forces. Tourists observe worshippers, monkeys hold council in a government hall, and soldiers guard a crowded market place. In evaluating these places, one is confronted with subtly disorienting hybrids, which may seem almost plausible at first glance within the modern phenomenas of accelerated global transit and cultural influence."
