|Charley Peters, Window V Windows (2011)|
Window V Windows is a new work for TBC Artists' Collective's forthcoming publication 'Windows', which will soon be available to view on the 12-Pages Online Project Space. It used the photograph View from the Window at Le Gras as source material from which to make a work for the February issue of TBC's online publication. View from the Window at Le Gras was the first permanent photograph, created by Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 in Saint-Loup-de-Varennes, France. Niépce produced his photograph—a view of a courtyard and outbuildings seen from the house’s upstairs window—by exposing a bitumen-coated plate in a camera obscura for eight hours on his windowsill. In Window V Windows Niépce's seminal work has been glitched by opening it in Wordpad for Windows and intervening in the image's coding, creating a mash-up of analogue and digital photographic data.
'Windows' by TBC Artists' Collective will be online at www.12-pages.com soon, featuring specially commissioned work by TBC Members and their invited guests.
