What does a simple pixel mean in the wandering of a digital adventure? Surely a figurative element is only a technical fact and without imagination? Marcel Wesdorp's quest is technically limitless and full of images. He lets us look behind the scenes of his digital process. While the smallest image already offers us new discoveries and challenges.
Supported by philosophical concepts, Wesdorp challenges the viewer to fathom what is going on when he or she observes his artwork. Wesdorp continues to explore new ways at the interface of physical reality and beyond. His research into creating new works of art that reveal something of the enigmatic presence of mind has yielded very different and fascinating works, ranging from film, print, book to installation.
Prints of these digitally developed areas seem to be real photographs, uniquely named by their specific xyz co-ordinates. But at a second glance you are struck by an unknown reality that lies beyond. Some steps in this process lead to unsuspected and surprisingly catching images, each of them with a most sensitive and enigmatic touch. Apart from the purely software based techniques, the collection and modelling of existing satellite data and maps is a second intricate field of work of the artist. Wesdorp continues to investigate new ways to show what lies beyond the surface.
