UNTITLED, ART FAIR 2019
PIER 35, THE EMBARCADERO SF
See beyond the painted canvas and discover the artist’s intervention to old photographs. Omniscope is an application that integrates the art of Keb Cerda with today’s technology-based platforms, adding another dimension to his project of reinterpreting visual records of the past through the language of the contemporary times. The use of Omniscope reveals new figures and images invisible when viewing the works through the naked eye, allowing the seemingly faithful reproductions of photographs to transform into interventions that offer a wide range of commentaries about politics, culture, and economy. The application is not a mere device or tool in viewing artworks, but an integral part in meaning-making and interpretation of art.
