-John Ashbery Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror
Resuming Parmigianino’s project of self-portraiture in the age of intelligent machines, this project uses a CNC plotter, 180º circular fisheye lens, and custom software to record a layered image of place. Substituting computer vision and precision automation for the human eye and hand, this project operates at a physical precision and temporal duration beyond what is humanly possible. Laboring over a three-month period it produced a series of 12 site-specific drawings looking out of storefront window in the Amazon building in downtown Seattle.
