1997 8×8

Group picture with friends


Bringing together artists and friends of Gruppe 77 within one exhibition made up the basis of this project. What you see here is the result to which we came after several conversations: an exhibition with the title 8×8. All participants were asked to hand in one picture of their personal surrounding. The greates possible quadratic excerpt was then taken from this picture and digitalized with a resolution of 8×8 pixel. Each pixel displays the most dominant colour of 32.768 possibilities identified by a logarithmic calculation process.

The result is a 64x64cm large square incorporating 51 boards spread out equally on a 8×8 allotment.
