Work by Andrew Norman Wilson

“The photographs that I chose are Google Books images in which software distortions, the imaging site, and the hands of ScanOps employees are visible.
The fingers and software distortions that obscure the “pure information” in the books complicate Google’s technocratic proposals for a utopia of universally accessible knowledge. What emerges is an argument for the inseparability of matter and meaning, fusing a discussion of knowledge with ontological, ethical, and aesthetic issues.”
