VIE 02/01/17-03/31/17 TYO
VIE 02/01/17-03/31/17 TYO is comprised of a collection, selection, and recombination of graphical elements gathered during a journey to Japan. Franz Thalmair photocopied, manipulated and manually reproduced all found materials. The book is part of the artistic research project "originalcopy - Post-Digital Strategies of Appropriation", which runs from 2016 to 2019 at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and sheds light on the practice of copying from a post-digital perspective. The research project focuses on the tensions between the supposed immateriality of digital technologies and their material manifestations by appropriating contemporary methods of copying and exposing them to artistic processes of transformation and translation.
You are free to share (copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format) and adapt (remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially) the book VIE 02/01/17-03/31/17 TYO.
