SALON #3 Jonas Lund
Untitled is a new series of networked paintings by Swedish artist Jonas Lund.
Each work in the series evaluates its own performance and likability, quantifying data through in-depth network analysis. This information can then be accessed by near-field- communication, offering the viewer metadata on the painting and some additional abstracted information through a popup window appearing on his/her phone when scanning the NFC tag.
Through this technology, the viewer is provided with an alternative narrative underneath, creating a presence for the work beyond our physical world.
Each painting is composed of samples from artworks that have performed well in auction, yet the works are so thoroughly remixed, collaged and composed that only a very astute observer might see familiar passages.
