Group Show at Witte de With


It was nice of them to include not one but two photos of the 3D glasses. A hook to hang your FOMO around, proving the virtuality of your experience with glasses you cannot don. Most art experience is at least vaguely similar to IRL, visual snapshots taken by meat cams. But taking a photo of the thing you could have physically grasped exposed the glass between you and its object. And doubly strange since the glasses should allow for the virtual experience you also can't touch, en abyme our relation to images falls further and further into abyss of distended frames mirroring.
