Rafa�l Rozendaal: Post-internet giddy

Rafa�l Rozendaal, Abstract Browsing 17 03 04 (Google Docs), 2017, jaqquard weaving, 57 x 100 inches.

Contributed by Marjorie Welish / Rafa�l Rozendaal‘s “Anti-Social” is polyglot, and speaks all at once. Stretched on a support for canvas is a Jacquard textile that professes both web information and anintuitively arrived at design compatible with painting. The basis for these compositions is�the internet screen; and although stripped of words,�the images are still identifiable�as Google, Google Dox, reddit, and others, wherein�an�algorithm creates a recognizable order,�that�beauty overlays in arrhythmic disorder. Giddiness beyond prettiness.
