The Wall: Brand New Brand New Paint Job
Until April 2013, in dialogue with Perspectives on Collage, The Wall features projects looking at photography in relation to the tools and practices of digital post-production.
Originally disseminated in blog format, Jon Rafman’s Brand New Paint Job is a project in which famous paintings are used to wallpaper amateur 3D models collected from Google 3D Warehouse. The project moves through a succession of hyper-real, lobbies, office spaces, cars and lounge rooms using a virtual camera. The resulting images reference the world of interior design magazines, 3D gaming, social media mashups and synthetic photography.
