THE TRUTH BOOTH


A Collection of Lovers Lost Mistakes III
a project by The Black Mariah
Broadstone Studios, Dublin
September 16 – October 8, 2011

The piece is an Eileen Gray knock-off using a found digital 'thumbnail' image and an online photo-to-carpet weaving service. The carpet is available only in 'constrained' proportions, thus the white stripe to maintain Gray's original design and its proportions, is included. Combined with the'noise' of the low-fi jpeg, creates a sort of automatic meta-modernism. I also use the term Compost Modern to describe this way of working. It incidently displays a 'Made in the USA' tag.
