about: Saint Luke Drawing the Virgin

Within the context of digital visual media my work critically reflects the status of the traditional media of painting. I focus in particular on the relation between digital representations and the classical panel.

1. A painting was reproduced and compressed to a file in the data base.

2. The datareduced illustration of the painting is taken from the data base and scaled up to its original size.

3. Parts of the reproduction of the painting can be regarded and printed out.

Basing on:
