Work by Benjamin Cook

I reject the idea that the loss of information when photographing a painting creates a
lesser version of the original, in favor of an understanding that the painting can live in duplicity.
While the digital version of the work loses scale, tactility, specificity of place, etc. it also gains
new attributes, such as a greater accessibility, ability to be duplicated and moved, new forms of
interaction and participation, and an intimacy the physical paintings cannot match. The Platonic
“form” of the work, neither rooted fully as digital or physical, acts as an example of how I
believe people should understand their digitally mediated experiences. Ridding the term “real
life” (as if experiences mediated digitally are “non-real life”) to better understand the systems
in which contemporary life demands you navigate, allows for a more conscious and informed
decision maker.
