Lumenhouse is pleased to present Flatscreen, a solo exhibition of new work by Jeremiah Teipen.
The exhibit features a new body of video and digital print work from Teipen, all produced using found media. Consisting of thousands of bits of visual information streamed together, overlapping and colliding, each piece questions the amount of information at our fingertips, addressing aspects of the information age that are overwhelming to the point of futility. This work expresses how excess information has the tendency to recombine beyond control and attenuate beyond comprehension.
According to Teipen, “these pieces take on the whole of the interwebs and are compiled using data from Internet search results that are compounded to create visual orgies in electronic cerebral wastelands.” The conceptual aspect of the work is created inside the viewer’s head, a non-physical idea – dependent on the viewers cognition and ability to make sense of the deluge of information that is being thrust at them. The works simultaneously seduce the viewer with their pure visual gluttony, an almost surreal and mesmerizing experience, similar to finding patterns in clouds, both physically and in cyberspace.
