9781597110938: Thomas Ruff: jpegs

How much visual information is needed for image recognition? A pretty small quantity of data will go a long way for the brain and the computer, both of which take shortcuts for the sake of speedy comprehension. In the "Jpegs" series, German photographer Thomas Ruff exploits this imprecision in digital technology, locating online jpegs and enlarging them until the pixels emerge in a chessboard pattern of near abstraction. A closer look at these images reveals that, in addition to the degeneration of the image into a digital grid, the color and brightness generated by the algorithms of the compression also become visible. Many of Ruff's works in this series focus on idyllic, seemingly untouched landscapes, or conversely, on scenes of war and nature disturbed by human manipulation--subjects ill suited to disruptive pixelation, and therefore perfect for Ruff's purposes. Taken together, these images constitute an encyclopedic compendium of contemporary visual culture that also engages the history of landscape painting. A fittingly deluxe and oversize volume, "Jpegs" is the first monograph dedicated exclusively to this monumental series.

About the Author :

Thomas Ruff has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout Europe, Asia, and North America, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and Kunst-Werke, Berlin. He is the 2006 recipient of the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award.

Bennett Simpson is associate curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and a widely published critic. He recently curated exhibitions of the work of Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Roe Ethridge, Dan Graham, and Lisa Lipinski.

Review :

"Photography today lives, quick and dirty, compressed and lossy, on Flickr and Google Earth and the Web in general. Copy a jpeg and enlarge it - make the medium the message, as Ruff does here primarily with images of landscapes and disasters - and it fractures into the twenty-first-century Impressionism of pixilation, a quality that feels both sensual and cold and equalises everything from an al-Qaeda training camp to a neo-Romantic waterfall scene... 'Jpegs' can be considered nothing less than a summa of how we picture the world today: in a manner both panoptical and flattened, losing resolution to gain information." --Art Review
