Rico Weber at Maria Bernheim


Made in 1994, Hommage a Claude Monet feels a requiem to media that would replace him. While Seraut and the pointils may have better understood the RGB dynamics, Monet seems the true forebear to the overripe sex of televisual allure, the Media that would replace us. Weber's "3D Photographs" use photography's inherent elegiac, stasis and stagnation in time's drift: now television, once the consummate shift in media consumption - arranging our homes around it - now lags behind in several generations, from HD to digital to the internet, and now we see it projected though the pasture of CAD.
